Paper towns and how maps have power.
I love the map comparisons of earlier choices having a huge impact on others down the line. For years I used the phrase, “Play the tape”….referencing tapes for a tape recorder or a video in order to realize how actions and decisions in our stories would play out in the future. Your map examples are much better because they are timeless, but tape recorders and VCRs were not. powerful. Thanks, Alex.
