"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

March is fully here and with it the promise of spring!  Some of us who have weathered the long winter are looking forward to the chance to "get out" a bit and enjoy nature.  While we are looking toward the warmer weather, there are also many opportunities to share the "warmth" and reawakening that stories provide.  I was able to spend last weekend with two of my grandchildren, two of my little "story listeners".  It is always a treat to be able to tell stories to them and watch their eyes light up as they enter that magical world with me.  If you haven't told a story to someone recently, what better time is there to share a bit of yourself?  And what better time to invite a storyteller to your next event to share that magic with others?
