Experience of the Unknown

This project develops a method to express and examine experiences of the unknown. Every moment is potentially a new experience; every event is unique and initially unfamiliar. As storytellers, we compare and contrast new experiences with previous ones.

Imagine and write a description, in the form of a short story, of an experience of the "unknown" that you remember. The experience could be any event that seemed puzzling or strange. For a title, choose a single word from your story that best describes your response to the unknown. As a group, compare and contrast imagination and experience.
