The Johnson County Range War
Telling a story, with written words, sounds and images, descriptive and prescriptive
has always been told from an evolving point-of-view
There has to be bias, be it cultural, political, religious, or generational
There is no such thing as simply reporting the news
News is the event created in the mind of the reporter
the witness, the observer - either explicit or implicit, as active or passive reality
Reality can be very subjective, based on your need to believe that someone supports your point-of-view
or that you simply accept the information offered, because you do not have your own belief system
Do you create picture words to satisfy a personal or spiritual goal?
Do you submit to satisfy a corporate or political agenda?
As a storyteller, the difference between what you say and what someone else hears
is dependent on gut level literacy, emotional memory, and your circle of choice
We want to change the status quo, we need to rebel
We have to evolve in order to survive
Now, what does this image say to you?
