a different take

So, after listening as another reheated Valentine Day’s story idea was pitched, NPR did a great little piece yesterday called Galactic Gold: A Valentine Story.

So, this is not really multimedia you point out. You are probably right.

The clever idea they demonstrate is how to revisit a story that comes around every year and cover it in a new an interesting does the gold get to your finger (if you are married, are wearing a wedding band, and it is made out of gold).

What caught my ear and imagination was the story itself. It is quite interesting, have a listen. The primary lesson is that it takes imagination, a little creativity and guts to tell the usual story in a different way. Kudos NPR!
