"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

August is here already.  Where did the time go?   My storytelling class just finished last week with a showcase performance for families and friends of my young tellers and it was great to see them "shine" on stage.  Stage fright happened for some, but they persevered and pushed through it, which is a great skill for other times in their lives.  School is just around the corner, so make sure to include telling stories with your family as you plan those last camping trips, picnics, and other outdoor activities. With school starting, consider hiring a professional teller for your back-to-school carnival or activity!  You'll be glad you did.
