Forward or back?

Mike Weaver compares and contrasts these two thoughts:

The improvisor (story teller) has to be like a man walking backward. He sees where he has been but he pays no attention to the future. His story can take him anywhere but he must still ‘balance’ it, and give it shape, by remembering incidents that have been shelved and reincorporating them. Keith Johnstone

We were not created to walk backward into the future. Just the decision to look forward to the future has a healing power in itself. Erwin McManus
