Safety, Variety, Shared and Private. Perhaps these are my most important story backgrounds. I am grateful I have had these in my neighborhood, at my home, so I may live my life, with my daughter, several pets, and neighbors, friends, and trees growing and some also dying. It is all background. I am blessed. I wish everyone had the same safe "background" so they may "foreground" their own life without worrying about their safety and security.
