The Way We Spread Stories
Rock and granite were the first. Pictures, then ideas, then words, and then sentences etched into the earth’s memory, something that helped the present understand the past.
Ink and parchment were next. The ink would grace the parchment, and the two would synthesize and form something brand new, something that would inspire many.
Pen and notebook soon followed. A runny flow of ink dispersing itself across a lined page to create something so beautiful, that though fictional onto it some people still cling.
Keyboard and cramped fingers is something of the now. A gentle, peaceful clicking matching the rhythm of my own heart, and will lead me to discover something that was already there all along.
This is the evolution of how we spread stories. How we spread knowledge of the past. How we spread the journey of our lives.
