"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 the beautiful month of May again and I am looking forward to the summer season of storytelling.  This is the time to take your stories "on the road"--to camp, on vacation, up the mountains, to the seashore, or just to the back lawn while watching the stars...anyplace is the place for story.  If you are planning a summer event or festival, it would always be better with storytelling.  Invite a professional teller to help you integrate story into your activity, or take the leap and try it yourself.  Make sure your family knows your story.  Telling stories on those long car trips is especially helpful.  Check out storytelling events and reading incentives at your local library.  The possibilities are endless...and so much fun!
