Imagine telling a story with a mud map arrangement of stones, sticks and anecdote:
    Stones become stand-ins for people – elements of the story.
    Scatters of stones tell of populations – groups of people.
    Circles suggest a meeting – discussion.
    Sticks and stones can tell a story of society.

Sticks and stones,
    Broken bones,
        Names and lies still hurt you
