Thursday-A Storytelling Day
Its been a long day - filled with stories.
First I taped a new story for Stories in Time - for Channel 16.
Then reviewed my options and selected the stories for my Seniors in the afternoon. I selected a personal story about the day I started the first grade and then several ghost stories to celebrate Halloween a bit early. Many of my Halloween stories are actually family stories because our family is a little bit haunted. You can heard them here
As I was putting my Chattervox in its case a woman still sitting next to me looked as though she had something to say. "You must read a lot to know so many stories." " Well I do read a lot of stories but I have also been storytelling for nearly 20 years and so I have learned a lot of stories to tell." "oh." She still did not move. I waited. " Listening to you is like it used to be when I listened to the radio - I can see the pictures." I could have hugged her.
Finished off the day with a board meeting for Telling Moments Theater, a new storytelling theater in the Washington, DC area. Storyteller Linda Fang is leading the effort and is doing a fine job of it. Good ideas. We planned the rest of our season.
I think I will close out the day - in bed - with a book - The Lost Symbol, by Dan Brown.
