The human experience is a universe of stories, from prehistoric cave drawings to ghost tales around a campfire, from classic novels to a $250 million dollar Hollywood blockbuster. Speaking of the universe, how was the universe created? Now there’s a story! Our past is a story. And most certainly, so is our future. Storytellers need an audience. And for audiences, reality is perception. Reality or fiction? Truth or illusion? How audiences interpret/engage stories is as important as what kinds of stories are told and how they are told. Stories move us; take us somewhere. The best stories even change us.
