After Rex Avenue

Remember back when I was making all those micro-documentaries last year?  They are starting to roll out on the reelate.org site.  The first one is about Bea Shaheen McPherson.  There were about a hundred moments when I knew that she knew what we were up to:  Mythologizing.  And she worked vigorously with me to create a good sense of her story.  I wonder if the older we get, the more we understand how stories act as grooves for people to live into, that they are (as Kenneth Burke said) "Equipment for Living."

You can watch at reelate.org.
