"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

The daffodils are blooming, the trees are getting their new green leaves, spring is here, and I am ready to tell stories.  Recently, I have realized how important it is to tell our stories and to tell stories from our culture (and other cultures, as well).  We must preserve our identity and pass our values and traditions on to our children, and that is best done with story.  Stories are what bind us together and make us more human:  it's hard to carry bad feelings for someone once you have heard their story.  So...share with others what is unique about YOU.  And don't forget to plan your upcoming end-of-school-year activities with story in mind.  Hire a professional teller today and get a view of what story can do for children, teens and adults, too.  It's a great way to promote literacy and preserve culture.
