"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

December is here, giving a chance to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, and other winter celebrations according to your culture.  Many of our winter celebrations focus on lights, candles, or something to illuminate the darkness that envelopes many of us at this time of year.  All of these celebrations give us the chance to tell stories and enjoy the warmth that brings.  Children's eyes light up when the storytelling starts, as do adults....they are just more subtle about it.  Try hiring a storyteller for your next party or occasion.  It's a different type of entertainment that is enjoyed by all.  And don't forget to share your family and personal tales at this time of year--it's a great way to make family memories!
