The Storyteller's Creed

While going through an old notebook looking for an exercise to do with a theater class tomorrow, I came across this.  I used to share it at the beginning of every class on theater and creativity I taught.  It seems especially apt now given the recent death of my beloved son William.

The Storyteller's Creed is taken from the beginning of Robert Fulghum's book All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten.

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowldege,
That myth is more potent than history,
That dreams are more powerful than facts,
That hope always triumphs over experience,
That laughter is the ony cure for grief,
And I believe that love is stronger than death.
