Why I am here...

Before MTV and iPods and youtube
there were stories.
Before books and magazines and comics
there were stories and storytellers-

Language was oral before it was written.
Our brains are hard wired for storytelling but
reading and writing are "unnatural acts".

its part of who we are as human beings
It's natural.

Storytelling is as old as the hills.
Storytelling is tomorrow-
How do we know about tomorrow?
Tomorrow does not exist yet
We know it by the stories we tell.

Stories are everywhere
we are. On the bus, train
supermarket, school on your cell and in
your tubes and screens.

We all use story to
move through this story which is our life.
