"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

October was an amazing month!  Not only were the trees showing off their finest colors, but the stories were everywhere.  I spent Halloween night doing a ghost tour, including visiting a haunted basement; then I told stories at a party for "big" people--the kind that like a bit of scare.  They all sat around a fire while I told ghostly tales.  Now that November is here, we are gearing up for the holidays and the family occasions that always brings.  Don't neglect to share the family reminiscences, the memories of other holidays, the escapades of when you were a child, and whatever else might come to mind while family is gathered.  Those tales bring you closer and help the children realize that their parents were young once! That is also the way to pass on to the younger generation the things that you value.  Have a great Thanksgiving!
