I’ve heard it said that a journey begins with one footstep so it is with changing the world, one living being at a time. Never before in the history of the world could a person with no voice, the insignificant nobody reach and touch humanity merely by their placement on the linear path of time. Technology affords us an opportunity and nothing more. The emperor of France Napoleon Bonaparte once said “ability is of little account without opportunity”. I may have the ability yet you surely possess the opportunity for a journey of a lifetime.
I have found the uniqueness in myself and enjoy telling tales, spinning yarns or merely putting pen to paper and bringing to life characters and lessons for people to read of and experience in their own ways. As a child I read works from Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson and the saucy Lord Byron and even at those tender ages in my youth saw the strength and weaknesses present in their writings. Many writers write volumes or a single piece of note seemingly touched by their muse while others may create stories visually in the guise of a screenplay. The change in one or many comes from reading, hearing, seeing and experiencing words of another brought to life. Sorrow and joy as well as good and evil as Dr. Henry Jekyll shared with us.
To give life and platform to a vision for the ages to enjoy and retell is the change the world needs.
