Chapter 18—Symbolic Convergence Theory

Robyn
I always wondered if the three of us were sort of sick. Whenever Jenn, Lynn and I would get together and hang out, we would always talk about the past. I don't know why, but all the funny things we had shared in the past always seemed so much more exciting than anything we were doing in the present. When one of us would start to share a common yarn, the other two would immediately pick up the fantasy and create a chain reaction of energy. We had a million fantasy themes that we would re-create through time. I always thought that we were pretty weird, but Bormann declares that we are just natural symbol users and storytellers who voice fantasies and create cohesiveness.

Emma
Before I came to school, I did an Outward-Bound type Wilderness trip with 10 other women. I think Dickens must have gone on one of these trips because it was “The best of times and the worst of times.” The only way I got through it was the great girls in my group. We had a blast. We had many inside jokes, but I’m unsure if the one I have picked qualifies as a joke, but whenever I get together with my girls, we still look back on it and laugh. Sabrina and I had to sleep in soaking wet sleeping bags on a rainy night when it was fairly chilly outside. It was miserable. A truly trying experience. However, halfway through the night when we couldn’t sleep, we started looking for positives. They were a little ridiculous and went something like, “well it may be raining, but at some point in time in our life, we will be dry again.” Then the other person would say, “positive,” and go on to add to it, “we may not be able to sleep, but I think one of my socks is dry,” and then again the other person would respond, “positive.” This attitude of finding positives in the most hopeless of situations really resonated with our group. It made us laugh and lifted us up in the situation. It was our joke and a lifestyle.
