Empathic Attention

"Creating strong storytelling scenes requires a great deal empathic attention. Every raised eyebrow is a brush stroke. Every clenched fist, and softening mouth. Seeing each brush stroke is not essential for seeing the picture, but it certainly gives it depth, it gives it poetry, it gives it story. Feeling each brush stroke further deepens meaning. My eyes and ears are tuned into the same channel. I am listening with my whole body."
