Easy well-matched conversation with someone who thrives on self-deprecation, draws on NLP tools and techniques when she talks, and whose approach to digital storytelling chimes with my own. Earlier this week a new colleague reinforced a perspective I’ve held (but not really articulated much) he learned by being in a lift with a broadcaster. Joyful content comes when those doing the storytelling are at their ease, when there’s spontaneity, and when there’s the lightest-touch of plans. There’s a need too to be at ease sharing the reality of life - the antidote to the habit we all have of planning all the spontaneity out of a moment. Tessa and I talked about composer Michael Torke, perfectionism, sound production, and Schubert’s C major Fantasie.
