"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

November is the month for being thankful, and I am thankful for family and for the stories that keep us connected as a culture and as families.  What would it be like to sit around the Thanksgiving dinner table and  not have stories to share?  Stories make us human; they give us roots; they give us wings; they give us hope through the bad times.  Take some time as the holiday season approaches to think about YOUR family stories, bring them out and dust them off, and be ready to share with those you love.  Consider storytelling at your next holiday party...you might even hire a professional teller as a different type of entertainment.  Be grateful for the stories that connect us.
