A Real Compliment

Sometimes I ask the folks I interview what they think of this whole StoryKeeping thing. In past interviews I’d picked up on how much the story teller appreciated the gesture of making their life a priority, but I was curious as to what word choice they’d use to describe that feeling.

Prior to StoryKeeping sessions your loved ones will downplay their lives by saying things like “Oh, I don’t have anything to say”, or “You don’t want to hear me talk about myself”. It seems the light bulb comes on during our sessions as they realize they do have something to say, and when you let someone know you do want to hear them tell their story, it’s taken as a real compliment.
