How can we possibly understand what it means to be human when we only traverse our own lives? There are so many ways to see the world; so many experiences to shape our perspectives. Yet, we’ll only know our own. Can we ever truly appreciate humanity and all it has to offer?
That just got deep…
Yup. Get used to it, ’cause it’s gonna happen a lot here.
Stories allow us to live a million other lives beyond than our own; to understand people like and unlike ourselves; to capture your culture as it was, is, and can be; to travel the world from our blanket burritos. That’s why we study them–for humanity’s sake.
Whether you interpret the stories or tell them, you help to crack open human essence.
