Back View

“Do we really need this picture for the story?” The editor’s nose crinkled up in disgust, “The front view with lawns is far more appealing to go with his childhood pics.”

Our next issue will carry the story of a celebrity recently killed in a shooting incident.

“I believe that while dreams are constructed on the front, the backside of a building keeps one firmly rooted to reality. The theme of our story is how he gradually got unhinged, leading to disaster.”

“Well, the backside may have some hidden facts about the killer. Would you like to investigate the linkage?”

  1. Truth is, we all have a back side, don’t we? The part of us we keep covered from others because it may not fit our public persona. One thing I learned as a counselor was that no one really knows anyone else 🙂
