Australian Artist & Writer
Stories are how we remember
Stories are flexible. They are told, expressed, seen, heard, drawn, painted, imagined, experienced, felt, embellished, retold and remembered. We consume our stories in so many different ways and no one way is right for everyone.
Our everyday lives are a multitude of anecdotes, most of which rely on a shared memory or story with a beginning, middle and end. The cooperative living in our society is an agreement to these community stories and as a result, there’s more trust and acceptance in our society than we realize. For example: we trust the bus driver to drive safely; we are confident the bakery will not poison our lunch; we retell, celebrate and learn from history; and we believe in the rules of law and religion.
But we must continue to share because mankind’s survival depends on remembering stories. Please listen to the taxi driver, the hairdresser, the businessman, the butcher, the beggar, the child, the system, the planet and your neighbour. Be active and present in your listening because, when engaged, you might hear something astounding: someone else’s voice.
