Camera Position 195 : The River of a Story

This episode is a little meditation on the importance of aligning ourselves with the messages around us, using Anne Lamott’s book Bird by Bird as inspiration.

“The Gulf Stream will flow through a straw provided the straw is aligned to the Gulf Stream, and not at cross purposes with it.”

One thought on “Camera Position 195 : The River of a Story”

  1. Hi Jeff,
    thanks for your new podcast! I found the quote very apt – I guess I´ll steal it for my workshops too :o) The idea of a straw as applied to personal orientation is good – you move around, looking and thinking of ideas, creative direction until you´re suddenly in the flow! I guess we could also use a compass needle or radio tuner too to illustrate such a process, but the idea of “being in the flow” is very creative.
