    1. 🙂 although I prefer messenger and witness nowadays. Audience comes from theater, music and cinema. Take away the audience and they still stand, which is not the case in storytelling. Teller is only a partial description of what we do. It points to execution.

        1. Well, although I live in close proximity to the Old Testament 🙂 I’m not sure it was the source of inspiration. These are actually the ‘parts’ we play in order to allow storytelling to take place.

    1. Hi Tanya and thanks for joining. Interesting comment. Where in these three to you place the ‘telling’ part of ‘storytelling’?

        That would be “communion”. I think that storytelling is a dynamic, interactive process that involves not only telling but receiving.

        1. Telling and receiving – of course. The receiving in it’s turn effects the telling in real-time. It’s not a passive position but rather the contrary – it’s influential.

            Yes. 🙂 As much as I try to avoid business jargon, storytelling is a synergistic exchange, especially in the oral tradition.

          2. The reciprocal nature of storytelling is an important issue many fail to see or wish to ignore.

            Yes, I completely agree with that. I think that’s what so caught me about your earlier discussion about the difference between storytelling and literature.

            I like this philosophical sandbox. I want to play in it for a while.

          4. Well, sand-castles are my favorite. You’ll find plenty if you dig into the ‘Agora’ page.
