"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

What better way to warm up a winter night than with story?  Cuddle up in front of the fire with a cup of hot chocolate and your favorite book and life seems complete.  Of course, it's even better if you spend the evening with family or friends and share your own stories, or versions of stories you have heard.  Winter used to be the time for telling tales...that time when the farm work was less taxing and the evenings were long and dark.  Families had to make their own entertainment, and story and music were the ways to do just that!  Hey!  The evenings are still long, dark and cold, so try story as a way to warm things up this January.
