Stories are always told looking back; itís as if we only understand and trust a narrative when the ending ties up all loose ends, when it hatches, matches and dispatches the characters, when there is a message or lesson for readers to take away. We believe only by looking backwards and connecting. Then, in the light of reflection, we see that what happened was meant to be. The linear representation obliterates other options, obscures all points where we could have decided differently, ignores the accidental incidents we didnít see, that would have changed our minds about where we are heading.
