195: Themes, Motifs, Narratives

Invitation by Shel Silverstein

If you are a dreamer, come in.

If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, 

A hop-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…

If you’re a pretender, come sit by the fire

For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. 

Come in!

Come in!

Fred Rogers (best known for his long-standing children’s programming, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood) is said to have carried around in his wallet a piece of paper. It contained a quote from a social worker that helped him remain curious and empathetic to all peoples. The note read: “Frankly, there isn’t anyone you couldn’t learn to love once you’ve heard their story.”

As we continue to better understand these nine creative voices, I asked them the following question: Are there specific themes or motifs that consistently appear in your work, and if so, how do they contribute to the overall narrative you're trying to convey?

In the next episode, I pose the question: Can you discuss the intersection of technology and storytelling in your field, and how advancements may influence the way you approach narrative in your projects?

To be continued…
