713: Becoming real

Side notes for this podcast:

In some ways, todays world feels like the world we all experienced as 3 or 4 year-olds, before we understood the people around us were … shock horror … people like us.

With hopes and dreams and tempers.

The world is like that now, with most of the people who come across our path little more than wraiths.

A comment. A like. A spam email.

There’s a real person behind that, but we take away only the barest hint or shadow.

Our job, as storytellers, is to become real to the people who matter – to the people we can serve.

That’s the job of story.
