Stories begin when an image translates into words.
This is one of my favorite images from a recent wedding I attended. The couple had gotten up to go get their food. I turned around and saw Mike’s jacket and Tana’s veil resting on their chairs in the back of the barn.
I snapped a picture of this moment because it was the beautiful beginning of the new chapter in this young couple’s lives. Even though they were not present at the table, their belongings they left behind reminded me of why we were all gathered together to celebrate the love these two had for each other.
Images cannot be heard and sounds cannot be seen. Think about that; and how our senses work together in telling the stories of our lives.
How are you telling your story?
Are the words, sounds and objects you leave behind delivered the way we would like others to perceive them?
