"The storyteller is deep inside everyone of us. The story-maker is
always with us. Let us suppose our world is attacked by war, by the
horrors that we all of us easily imagine. Let us suppose floods wash
through our cities, the seas rise . . . but the storyteller will be
there, for it is our imaginations which shape us, keep us, create us -
for good and for ill. It is our stories that will recreate us, when we
are torn, hurt, even destroyed. It is the storyteller, the dream-maker,
the myth-maker, that is our phoenix, that represents us at our best, and
at our most creative."
Perhaps the "inanities" of the Internet will help create the new
storyteller, dream-maker, myth-maker.
