To Push Back the Darkness

We strive so hard to share. From a technological standpoint, one thread of our cumulative history as a species has been our growing ability to communicate – more information, faster dissemination, ever larger audiences.

Threaded throughout this whole, our logic and emotions weave from the dual hemispheres of our left and right brains a warp and weft of fact and fiction that create those tapestries we want others around us to see.

And after all these cultural millennia, we still best understand these efforts through the structure of narrative. Our storytelling still resonates our shared bonding around smoky campfires pushing back the threatening darkness around us…and existential loneliness within.

And so we share. More. Faster. Broader. Hope and fear equally driving our ebb and flow.

At the end of the day, as shadows lengthen and campfires are lit once again to drive away the dark terrors of night and soul, connection still remains a wonder and a mystery, a flicker of light in the darkness… a beacon of hope,

Our yearning,

Our goal.
