 Once you start digging into it, your life can seem like an archaeological expedition. There are just so many things that you can start to bring to the surface to help remind you of your life story. Just some of them are:
  • Photos.
  • Documents.
  • Journals & diaries.
  • Films & videos.
  • Audio recordings.
  • Bric-a-brac and souvenirs.

Dragging out all these things as reminders and prompts of your Life Story are fine but what is there amongst these things that you can use as part of your story, in ways that maybe you’ve never considered? In amongst all the ‘things’, in your life there are the components that make them up, that can be used for various other applications.

Nowadays you have the ability to break apart, then mash back together, in different forms, all the components of these things in your life to make something different, more engaging and entertaining in ways to tell the stories that wasn’t possible even just a few years ago.
