“Once upon a time, a group of blind men heard that a strange animal, called an elephant, had been brought to the town, but none of them knew of its shape and form. One by one, they went to touch the animal in order to understand what it looked like. The first person, whose hand landed on the trunk, said "this animal is like a thick snake". Another who placed his hand upon its side said the elephant "looks like a wall". As for another person, whose hand was upon its leg, said the elephant is a pillar like a tree-trunk."
"We all have limited perceptions of reality based on our personal experience, education, and social surroundings. Stories are like small windows that may suddenly open our eyes to a new reality, and profoundly transform our beliefs and meaning of life. This, I believe, is what animates me throughout my projects and nourishes my passion for writing and creating stories.” Maroussia
