Storytelling is a great way to relax, inspire joy (in ourselves and in others), and a good pathway to accomplishment. Still, as amazing as it is to tell our stories, it's way more way more fun—not to mention rewarding, helpful, inspiring, connecting, etc.—to create and share stories with each other.
If you think so too, join us.
I believe we aren't lost until we're forgotten. Oblivion is the enemy and a well-crafted story with our photos+words is the best way to remember our experiences, friends, and family and what they've meant to us. We tell stories to kick Oblivion to the curb.
However, not everyone "gets" what we're up to or why. So, it's nice to have company. Being around other storytellers has a way of inspiring ideas. Likewise, it's fun to talk about our storytelling journeys and talk story with others that "get" it and us.
Which brings me to another belief. I think our stories have power. I can see myself in your stories you can see yourself in mine. Our stories help us see what's out there, give us ideas for how to get through it, and let us know that we're on this journey together.
Creating anything that matters has its ups and downs. I get it—especially, after working professionally as a writer, graphic designer, and photographer. But, there's no need to go it alone. Our growing community is here for you. Likewise, we happily welcome your voice to the celebratory cheers, written support, inspiration, and helpful tips and techniques we share with each other.
You belong here (I can feel it).
