So when considering what is it that I bring to the world, that I would like to share with others, I think it is storytelling. But being such a visual person I like to add the pictures I see in my head when I tell a story. That's where my art comes in.... So when considering what I what to communicate through this blog and through my art I think about how much stories move me and how I want to share that with others visually. To create a sense of awe, or wonder, or just happiness in others through a story that is told with pictures is the mark I would like to leave. So I began looking for inspiration in quotes about storytelling that might sum all of that up better than I just did. I found this quote and really liked it because it speaks to the simple joys that make life special, that make us happy, that make us well.... like storytelling. I hope you enjoy it to.
.... if you came to a medicine person complaining of being disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they would ask one of four questions: When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop finding comfort in the sweet territory of silence? ”
