It happens every time we turn on the television and look at our phones, when we over-hear gossip or look at a meme.
Storytelling is part of the human experience. It is a phenomenon that is not limited to the pages of a book or the brush strokes on a canvas, and can be simply spoken over the phone.
It will impact you, change you and return to you every time you close your eyes.
Humans are emotional creatures and we think and act determined by how we perceive that emotion.
Storytelling allows us to digest information we engage with every day as it communicates to us in the familiar language of emotion which we naturally connect with.
People relate to one another through stories because in the end we all appreciate the same messages that our favourite tales tell.
A story can teach, comfort and make us fall in love.
The ability to tell a story is powerful.
