"What Happens When Ocean Eddies Hit a cliff?

The waves continue their attempts...

The stories collected by HW are continuous attempts

to go against the current,

a whirlpool whose concentric movement allows the storyteller

to get a grip on herself and put words on who she/he/they is.

Sharing a story is a valuable tool for processing our own experiences

and helps us formulate evidence that we, as others,

have faced similar challenges and survived."
