"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 brings cooler days and more chances to get together with family and tell stories and experiences to each other.  This is what brings families together and gives kids roots.  They need to know where they come from and what makes their family special and unique.  Don't forget to share your childhood memories with your children....that makes a big impact in their lives and helps them through the "rough spots" we all have.  Children love to hear about their grandparents and what life was like when they were younger.  It gives them a window to the world that is changing so rapidly.  If you are planning a holiday gathering, why not include storytelling as part of the entertainment?  Whether you hire a professional teller or keep it informal with family and friends, it's a great way to build community.
