"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 my favorite storytelling season of the year. As soon as the pumpkins and scarecrows start appearing I begin thinking about ghost stories...those stories that give you just a bit of chill to go with the cooler weather. Ogden and Salt Lake City Ghost Tours is a great way to celebrate the "season" and hear some of the actual experiences that people are having in haunted old buildings and cemeteries (and even on the street). Check out the website at www.storytours.com and add something different to your October. Don't forget to share some of your favorite autumn tales with your family and friends. Sit by the fire, pop some corn and enjoy the company of loved ones and stories. If you're planning an event, consider hiring a professional teller to "spook it up". Storytellers can tell everything from non-scary fare for little ones to tales that will keep older people lying awake at night. Have a haunting October!
