"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

Well, February is here at last...the month of love, and I just LOVE stories.  The winter in Utah has been especially cold and it's always nice to feel the warmth of story.  So, whether you're visiting with friends or taking the grandchildren on an outing, include storytelling in whatever you're doing.  At a recent storytelling festival held in Clearfield, Utah, more than a third of the tellers were youth.  They ranged in age from 7 to 14 and did a great job presenting their stories to an audience of nearly 100 people.  It's great to see the "next generation" picking up on the importance of storytelling.  Don't YOU miss out on the fun.  Share a story with someone you love today.
