We Are Storytellers
January 21, 2014
It's what we do.
If you haven't already seen Saving Mr. Banks, make the time to do so this week.
It's the story of how Mary Poppins came to be a Disney film and for those of us in the creation business, it's fascinating.
"That's what storytellers do. We restore order to imagination. We instill hope again and again and again."
Creation is never easy. It is always hard, hard work, and I'm glad that point was stressed in this film.
You are capable of more than you are producing. You know it, even if you never say it.
Come on! Push yourself a little further out on the edge. Share yourself more.
Edit. Agonize over every word. Edit some more.
Know how you want me to feel as I listen and then make it happen.
Do something worth hearing, worth sharing, worth remembering.
Yes, for a lifetime!
Create order from imagination tomorrow in a way that will delight those who hear you.
And always -- always -- instill hope.
