With the assistance of a cherished group of students, esteemed colleagues, art teachers, and a camera Manolo has begun the arduous process of learning how to tell stories with the right side of his brain.  In close collaboration with those groups of which he is a member, he now wants to tell stories that matter and, unlike the words lost in journals and the like, stories that are paid attention to, for as Roland Barthes famously argued “when I speak for nothing it is as if I were dying.”
