I’m always interested in how you find elements of a story in different cultures…It teaches you lessons. It teaches you things about people and about nature and then about a way of life that isn’t around anymore, like through the living history you learn about people and about their loves and their accomplishments… I like stories. It takes you away from yourself and from the present day and to a world. I have always had a rather fanciful imagination and it just allows you to explore that and see things from different points of views and explain things before there was the internet and lots of science. Different cultures would explain why things are the way they are, why you see a face in the moon.” -Linda Batlin
