The art of storytelling Is truly an art form. If you look up the word in the dictionary you will find this:
Storytelling is the interactive art of using words and actions to reveal the elements and images of a story while encouraging the listener’s imagination. It involves a two-way interaction between the storyteller and one or more listeners.
Did you see that? Even the word “art” is used the in the definition. But what does it mean? We humans love our stories. It is so much much a part of our lives that we dedicate resources to it (both time and cash). We go to movies, watch TV, read novels and yes, even listen to podcasts. We have to have the latest electronic equipment do to it. So, it must be pretty important to us. But Why?
Since the very beginning of time we have wanted to remember and be remembered. From painting on caves walls to episodes of NBC’s Grimm. They all help us remember who we are and what we can do. It can also help us dream of what is to come. Storytelling helps preserve us as a people.
So, it should not be a “wonder why?” we have storytelling. We should be asking ourselves how we can keep our personal stories safe and pass them along. Are you ever truly dead if someone has your stories? It is why… I do… what I do.
