"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 March and spring is just around the corner!  This is the time of year when I get SO excited about the flowers and the trees in bloom, and I get SO excited about storytelling.  In the Ogden, UT area we just finished with the Weber State Storytelling Festival and what an event that was!  Four national tellers and the chance for the local professionals to shine.  I was able to tell in a set of "French stories" (with music) and some personal tales at a senior center for a very appreciative audience.  When I perform and see the interested looks on the faces of those listening, and hear their conversations afterwards, I know why I love to tell, and hear, stories.  Stories can truly change lives and help us to live better, be more human, and connect more with those around us.  So...join me in the excitement of spring and storytelling.  I'm always available to help you discover the magic of story!
