"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

April is a beautiful month in Utah--trees are in bloom and flowers spring up everywhere.  It truly seems like a new beginning, and what better way to celebrate a newness of life than to hear and tell stories!  Folk tales from around the world help us connect with other cultures and discover the differences and also the qualities and yearnings we all share.  Family stories unite us with our own backgrounds and traditions, and stories of our cultural and historical heritage help us to know who we are and give us roots.  Try storytelling as a way to bring us all together in a positive manner; it's also a very rewarding way to celebrate this season of beginning.
