Telling Stories

September 1, 2009 at 3:29 pm 1 comment

I am looking forward to the next few months when in our meetings and workshops  we will be considering our work – and our workplaces – in terms of the stories we/they tell.    In preparation for our meeting in September 22, I am going to be posting some videos, articles and images that have provoked me to think more deeply about the stories we share.

Take, for example, this incredible video by David Hoffman called “Moments” – a compiliation of images which resonate because each of the anecdotes depicted here is a familiar personal experience, a uniquely human one in which we share emotionally and experientially.  In each of these images lies a story to be told, and one which we want to hear or be a part of.    I am reminded that the stories that get our attention, no matter which direction they will take us, begin with a moment of invitation to let their first words and images enter us (even as they ‘take us in’)  and begin to make them our own.

    every moment has a story or memory to go along with it
