As technology slips deeper into our daily lives, there are many distractions to turn us away from nature. Storytelling asks us to turn back towards it, towards something deeper, more communal, more complex. It asks us to step out of time, to sit together around a fire, sparks spiralling into the dark, starlit sky. To listen to the sounds deep in the undergrowth, to feel the textures of things with our animal skin. To taste the weather, to hear, to look, to really see; as someone starts to speak, to weave a story, to remember.
