"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

May is here and the end of school is rapidly approaching.  As we are working our way into the summer and vacation season, be sure to include storytelling in any family visits you might make.  Family members won't be around forever, and when they're gone, so is your opportunity to hear their stories.  So, besides collecting seashells or rocks or photographs from your trips this summer, be sure to collect stories:  whether your own adventures to pass on to others, or from your relatives about their lives and journeys.  You'll always be glad to have these recorded to listen to or read in the future, and your children will thank you, too.  Happy May!
