Our story comes from lived experience through thought and action. We are the collection of those thoughts and actions that reach back and project forward to make our present reality. When we read, we create shared experience that becomes our own story. Writing creates community through connection.
Communication occurs through symbol, colour and movement. Not all are required together, sometimes only one is necessary to convey a message. Meaning is provided by the interpretation of that message by the receiver. That interpretation is dependent on the past experience, the present environment and the future desires of the message sender and receiver. When that message is story it creates connection that flows from the whole experience in time and place of both sender and receiver in a cyclical and reactive manner. That is why we say – story is life. It creates dynamic connection.
Our story is our life – to share and create.
