“Who is the most powerful person in the world? The storyteller.” Steve Jobs
“It took me years to understand that words are often as important as experience, because words make experience last.” William Morris
Steve Jobs knew a thing or two about storytelling — after writing the Apple story and making history, he went on to launch Pixar and create “Toy Story” — a wildly popular and beloved children’s film. And William Morris? He was an author and poet who not only singlehandedly revised crafts in England, but created a short-lived, but legendary publishing firm.
Storytellers — what a calling we’ve been drawn to! How much the world needs what we have to offer! Consider the gifts we bring:
We give meaning to the chaos of life: We lift the everyday actions of the world, its drama and its joys beyond the fleeting moment.
We take our own experiences, what we’ve learned and lost and longed for, and turn them into gold — we show people they’re not alone.
We go into the darkness, the fearful places that other people avoid and refuse to look at — and bring back the light of understanding.
We create new words and give anyone who takes a journey with us a place to escape to, a way to leap from the everyday into the magical.
What wondrous powers we have! Let’s use them wisely and well as we all write on!
