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,
Names and lies still hurt you
