If on a winter's night

reading Calvino I came across this on page 109 -seems to fit the site!

I'm producing too many stories at once because
what I want is for you to feel, around the story,
a saturation of other stories that I could tell and
maybe will tell or who knows may already have
told on some other occasion, a space full of
stories that perhaps is simply my lifetime, where
you can move in all directions, as in space, always finding stories that cannot be told until other stories are told first, and so, setting out from any moment or place, you encounter always the same density of material to be told.
