"Storytelling is the most powerful way to put ideas into the world today." —Robert McKee

"Their story, yours and mine -- it’s what we all carry with us on this trip we take, and we owe it to each other to respect our stories and learn from them." — William Carlos Williams

Tell me a story!
Let me dream.
Let me walk with kings
and dine with queens.
Let me swim in the ocean of images and words,
floating on my back so that
I can taste the bluest of skies.
Caress me the curiosity of white puffy clouds and
lead me to a mountain full of wild flowers
And wild things that sing and dance
to a tune I've never before heard.
Take me to the edge, dangle me by my feet,
then sweep me up on a magic carpet of
mischief and courage.
Carry me back, gently down the rainbow side,
surrounded by
The company of afternoon shadows.
And then,
I, too will have a story to tell.
