"A story beats with the heart of every person who has ever strained ears to listen. On the breath of the storyteller, it soars. Until its images and deeds become so real you can see them in the air, shimmering like oases on the horizon line." Cameron Dokey, The Storyteller's Daughter

October is the perfect month for tales about ghosts and the supernatural.  (Though I can enjoy these stories anytime of the year!)  Take the time to read, or better yet, listen or tell a ghost story to someone this month.  There are many events around this time of year where you can hear a nice, chilling tale.  In my area we have the Ogden and Salt Lake City Ghost Tours that do an excellent job of providing the right amount of "spook" to fill your October evening.  Maybe you even have some personal or family stories of the ghostly variety.  Enjoy the haunting season with stories!

With cooler weather coming, it's time to start thinking about the warmth of stories in our lives.  Or how about the shivers of a ghost story to go with a crisp autumn evening?  Whatever your taste for stories:  family, folk tales or the supernatural, a beautiful early autumn day (or night) is the perfect time to hear...and tell.
