Thursday and Friday





FRIDAY

ON THE WEST COAST

Happy Birthday, Robin.
We remember the day - November 5
Fort Sam Houston Army Hospital, San Antonio, Texas

Robin catches some winks during the break at the East Bay Storytelling Festival, San Francisco, CA. a few years ago.



FRIDAY - ON THE EAST COAST.
Told Second Hand Rose at the Thomas-Harbaugh Library in Biglerville, PA tonight. Enjoyed the telling and meeting new people, many who were having their first-time experience of personal stories told for adults. It is always a pleasure to open that door for people.

Thursday - Adam Booth in Kensington

Oops. I forgot to save the date and post yesterday. And it was a good storytelling day.

West Virginia Storyteller Adam Booth came from Shepherdstown to join me on the Stories in Focus TV show as my guest and to tell as the featured teller at the Kensington Row Story Salon in the evening. Adam was a delightful and lively guest and I know folks will enjoy the program when it airs in December (every Wednesday at 9:15 PM.) on Channel 16.

For the Kensington performance I changed the format a bit and I liked the way it worked.
Steve Morissey, assisted by Jim Schoettler, opened with a short, funny Open Mic piece which was a good ice breaker. I followed with a fifteen minute rendition of my personal story Good Will Mourning. By that time the audience was warmed up and ready for Adam to take the floor. Adam tells warm, friendly and higly plausible personal stories with just the right detail touches so you are not absolutely sure when you have veered off the path of truth and into a LIARS trap. That's why he is a two time Champion Liar in West Virginia. The audience loved it. It was a good evening of storytelling.

Yesterday the computers that control the traffic signals in Montgomery County went haywire or just plain out. Traffic was a disaster. Imagine rush hour traffic in the Metro Washington area without any stop and go guides. Adam was caught in the middle of it coming down in the afternoon. I bet there will be a story out of his trip.
