The Story Tells Itself

If life were narrative, what would mine read like?

Three days ago, I sent an email contribution to Mr Miyagi, on his website "Days Were The Those", documenting interesting army stories. It was an old memory that had haunted me for some time, involving my narrow brush with death.

In his email back, Mr Miyagi made a very thoughtful statement. "Let the story tell itself." Boy did the story tell itself - it got brown-ed and miyagi-ed over the weekend.

It got me thinking. This story obviously reached out to people who read it. If my life is a story, what story would my life tell?

This is my story.
