Golden Bones

Reading Choices & Navigation

A story is a quest, a treasure hunt, an expedition across lands both known and unknown.

contents page:

  • lists the main narratives, which are the mapped routes of this journey

  • provides a link to the beginning of each main narrative

main narratives:

  • title — named in footer of each page

  • “back / next” — guides reader back & forth through pages of the narrative

  • text links — take reader to related content off the main road

  • “return to Our Story” — links back to the mapped route

images:

  • link to their source for attribution

text links:

  • off-site — opens in new window

Close window to return.

  • on-site — can lead anywhere within the Golden Bones project

Links divert the reader away from the known route. Following a link may result in

  • side trips on unmapped tracks and trails.

  • rest stops at way stations and shrines.

  • detours along lesser known roads.

  • bridge crossings between main narratives.

Lostness happens. Some options:

  • keep going

  • back out using browser back button

  • reorient using upper left hamburger icon (collapsed menu icon)

  • search using upper right magnifying glass icon

  • curse the storyteller

  • resolve to stay on the main route and avoid distraction

  • embrace distraction as discovery

  • reframe failure as enlightenment
