"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

It's May!  It's May!  This is the time when the flowers bloom in abundance and children are looking forward to the freedom of summer.  Why not celebrate this joyous time of year with story?  Spend some time with someone you care about and share an important story from your life, or just enjoy a funny or touching story together. As you begin plans for the summer, include stories and storytelling.  Share with each other, attend a storytelling festival (there are many from which to choose), or invite a teller to come along and bask in the entertainment.  You are sure to create your own stories this summer, so prepare to tell them to others, and enjoy the season!
