Blog Journal Entry

share (v.)
1586, to apportion to someone as his share," from share (n.1). Meaning "to divide one's own and give part to others" is recorded from 1592, this term seemed take on a new life in just 6 short years. In storytelling, we seem to do a great deal of sharing with our audience. In acting, its the same. you share yourself with the audience. when you put yourself and your own feelings into the story or part youre playing, the audience rewards you with positive reenforcement, such as clapping
c.1410, "manner of carrying the body," from M.L. gestura "bearing, behavior," from L. gestus "gesture, carriage, posture" (see gest). Restricted sense of "a movement of the body or a part of it" is from 1551; fig. sense of "action undertaken in good will to express feeling" is from 1916.

The musical sense of "short passage" is from 1789. The verb sense "to put into a phrase" is from 1570. Phraseology "choice or arrangement of words" first recorded 1664.
phrases can be used to make up stories while to phrase something can mean to put it together. sound like tricky puzzle that we all do, and that is to piece together ideas into a story. what are stories but bits of memories and ideas that are pieced together and woven into a beautiful quilt of knowledge, entertainment, and experience
