"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

February is the month of love, and I "love" to tell stories.  There have been some amazing storytelling events in the northern Utah area the past couple of weeks, and more to come in the near future.  What a great opportunity to curl up with a loved one and listen to stories!  Clearfield Storytelling Festival just completed its 4th successful year...we have outgrown the venue and will have to find a larger one for next January.  Weber State Storytelling Festival will be February 22-24, with great local and national tellers.  I look forward to performing (and listening) during that event.  If you haven't discovered the joy of listening to storytelling, you are missing something truly entertaining and life-affirming.  If you haven't tried sharing stories with your family, you are missing a great chance to get closer and just enjoy each other. Try it...you"ll be glad you did!
