"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

January 23rd we had an amazing storytelling festival in Clearfield, Utah.  There were eleven tellers and we had everything from cowboy poetry to folktales to puppets to juggling to tender family stories presented on the stage.  The tellers ranged from 9 years old to...well, somewhat older than that.  It was a diverse and great evening for tellers and audience alike.  Here in northern Utah we are looking forward to the Weber State University Storytelling Festival on February 22nd through the 24th.  National and local tellers will take the stage and provide excellent (and free) entertainment!  If you haven't heard storytelling, you're missing out on a great experience.  Stories speak straight to your soul and you can leave feeling refreshed, invigorated, emotionally cleansed, and just plain happy.  Check into storytelling events in  your local area and feel the magic!
