I really enjoyed reading

I really enjoyed reading Leslie Marmon Silko's ideas about story telling. I especially liked reading the Pueblo Creation story where the Thought Woman thought the world into being along with her sisters. It seems that we're collecting Creation stories in this class: the Pueblo idea, the Christian idea, and evolution. I'd like to add another one from a different culture. The aborigines of Australia believe that their ancestors sung the world into being while walking on paths called Songlines. These Songlines crisscross the world and connect everyone and everything. Each aborigine comes of age by walking their own part of one of those Songlines in a Walkabout.


In the second essay, I'm intrigued by deep play. Why do we play games where the stakes are so high?
