Stories are Currency

Humans, by nature, are curious. And because of this we are natural storytellers. It’s our way of making sense of the world and connecting with other humans. There’s no escaping it. Before technology we were telling stories around the fire and drawing images on cave walls. Does this mean that stories are the currency of life?

Everything we know is a story. Science is the story of what is and where it came from. Religion is the story of why it is so. Morals are the stories of how we should behave. There’s no escaping stories and of course we don’t want to.

With technology changing the way we communicate, it seems that it’s even more important to tell our own story. There’s that need to be heard and understood and validated.

So, what’s your story and how do you tell it? Words, pictures, music?
