Welcome to another exciting - and indeed very special Episode - of "The Good Listening To" Podcast with me Chris Grimes!

And I'm delighted to welcome to "The GLT Clearing" today - the warm, wonderful, wise and velvety-voiced Paul Dodgson! 

He beautifully describes himself in the Clearing as being a "Story Engineer".

Paul is a Writer, Producer, Musician - and Author of a lovely lyrical masterpiece of a book: "On The Road Not Taken" - a Memoire of the Transformational Power of Music. 

He also talks about his joy of Autobiography, Life Writing & Memoire, profoundly inspired as a Writer by Laurie Lee: 

"Autobiography can be the laying to rest of ghosts as well as an ordering of the mind. But for me it is also a celebration of living - and an attempt to hoard its sensations".

And as Paul also explains in his joy of "Life Writing": 

"I believe Life Writing is a wonderful thing. Not just for Lords and Ladies, Kings & Queens. It is something for everybody. Everybody's life is a wonderful thing and needs documenting..."

Nice!

A wonderful rich precious Diamond of a conversation indeed!

You can also "Watch/Listen" to Paul's time in The GLT "Clearing" here:

Enjoy!

Here too is his perfect song "Poppy's Song":

Hurrah!

So - thanks for listening to another episode of a "GLT with me CG!"

The Podcast series that features "The Clearing":  Where all good questions come to be asked and all good stories come to be told!

With some lovely juicy storytelling metaphors to also enjoy along the way:

The Clearing itself - A Tree (where we get to "shake your tree to see which storytelling apples fall out, in the form of a lovely storytelling exercise called "5-4-3-2-1") - some Alchemy - some Gold - and finally a Cake with a Cherry on Top!

Think "Desert Island Discs" but in a Clearing! 

Also think about William Shakespeare - and about Jaques in "As You Like It" in particular:

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages..."

Jaques: Act II Scene VII

And as my Guest in the Podcast:  Now is your 'moment in the sunshine' to share your story!

Who are you? What's your story? And what 'life-lessons-learned-along-the-way' would you like to share with us? And just to get bit "existential on yo ass" too (!) what would you like your legacy to be?  How would you most like to be remembered?

And all my guests have at least 2 things in common: They are all Creative individuals  - and all with an interesting story to be told!

If you'd like to find out more, then please do check out my websites www.secondcurve.uk + www.instantwit.co.uk - and there's also a dedicated "Good Listening To" Facebook Group c/o the link above.

Plus if you'd be interested in the experience of being given "a damn good listening to" yourself, or you'd like to explore the idea of some Personal Impact Coaching from me CG - to help level-up your confidence, communication, and personal impact c/o my online Coaching proposition: The Second Curve "Zoom Room" - then, by all means, do get in touch via any of the usual social media channels (see above) or you can email me at [email protected]
