We connect over story Maybe you want to invite some friends and consider how you’re sharing culture. Regardless, as the digital age shapes the topography of this 21st century, storytelling, not just information sharing, will be vital to our continued connection.

In each image there is a story. With image we could add a voice, our voice, to the shared conversation on what it means to be human as told by our photos, our posts and captions. If a picture is worth a thousand words, why not make it a story? The Holidays are here, make some memories and share some stories! #identifyculture #liveagreatstory #IthinkIhavedeerantlers
What if we told stories which need to be told? Do the images we post reflect the ways we want to live? Perhaps we would be less quick to judge.The people that surround us day-to-day are more complex and beautiful than we could ever imagine.

#identifyculture I loved this moment at the #grandcanyon It is so true to our times. This lovely Japanese tourist was dancing on the rim, while her mother #capturethemoment on her cell phone. I'm sure it arrived in Japan moments later. #americathebeautiful #portraitsofthecentralcoast
It is increasingly apparent that our visual senses are stimulated to the point of over-stimulation. Everything must have an image: whether it is the image of the refugee crisis, the image of success, the image of activism . . . pictures are still worth a thousand words whatever the caption. ‘If it is so hard to use words, why bother?’ #irony #identifyculture

Languages and words carry #identifyculture and carry thought. Whether it is concepts paired with images or words paired with links to other thoughts, our communication is shorter, more condensed compared to the essay length addresses heard over radio or printed in newspapers. #followthememe #backspaceftw
Royal edicts etched in clay tablets with stylus are not a far from a finger or stylus swiping the screen of the latest iphone. Languages and words were characters then: brush strokes, stylus wedges and character images. Yet, not too different from our myriad of emojis and emoticons. #identifyculture #followthememe Rosetta Stone, British Museum.
Humans are hardwired for connection making us the original rapid bandwidth. We desire to seek, to know, to be curious and to be connected. Connection takes us outside of ourselves and gives us a fuller bigger picture of the world. #identifyculture #goclimbarock
