698“Whitney and Carl, StoryCorps facilitators, have spent the last year touring the East and West coasts in their Mobile Airstream Recording Booth facilitating interviews with thousands of everyday people who share their life stories.
"Each conversation is recorded on CD and preserved at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. USA, and some excerpts are broadcast on NPR (National Public Radio). The saying, sums up their observation that no matter how far they travel the nectar of human experience unites us.
"This was taken in Eugene, Oregon USA, by Garth McKay.”
Carl added the following: “That quote came from a teacher of mine. I went to a Boarding School in Massachusetts and I had a physics teacher who always told the corniest jokes. One day he walked up to a friend of mine named Darius and said 'No matter where he goes, Dar-he-is! (terrible, I know).'
"But when I thought about the quote I asked him about it and we got in to a deeper conversation about the idea. And I think it is really import to the work that we do because we spend a large amount of time as containers for the stories of others.
"It can be easy to lose oneself in such a position. But this quote keeps everything in perspective. No matter how much you change, you are still you. No matter what.”
