What do Isabel Scheherazade and the American Ice Dancer Gold Medalists have in common? Scheherazade: The skaters and the 10-year old Isabel captured the message of the ancient Scheherazade who set the standard for what it means to live from story to story and how those stories can sustain you (a 420 Character, 9-Liner)

Scheherazade music plays for the Gold-Medal Dancers

etching their story in ice.

And we are mesmerized,

sustained by the narrative’s spirals, sit-spins, & twizzles,

which is fitting,

since the original Scheherazade etched her future in the 1001 tales

she spun and twisted to keep herself alive,

just as Isabel Scheherazade is doing now with her sequential stories.*

Inspired by that master-story-catcher of them all.
