Back in Oct 2009 you seemed to not remember how to add Friends. Well, here we are in Oct. 2010, and guess what???
I was inspired by our common dilemma and your perseverance, and would now like to add YOU as a friend.

I love the Kathleen Ragan book, and have used it for many stories for the K-3 students to whom I tell.
What is your (current) favourite uppity woman story? Or your favourite source book for them? I like the book by Kathleen Ragan "Fearless Girls, Wise Women, Beloved Sisters".
I am building an online archive of "proof" that storytelling works. I have posted on my blog and on the discussion pages as well as in Storytelling and education forum about it. I see you worked at Mother Goose, I would love to hear more, and also to see if you can add any links, sites, published papers, or other hard evidence to support storytelling and its place in health, education, community building, reminiscence work and so on.... all help appreciated!!
You are so right. Just as the uncontrolled flooding waters can destroy and controlled flooding waters can produce energy, so it is with stories! We have a tremendous treasure and a huge responsibility. Welcome!
Well, I believe in the power of story to transform lives - for the better! In fact, I am doing my graduate studies on this topic. This group is for those who share similar views and provides a venue for expressing them! So, you are welcome to "Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story." To join the group simply click on "Groups" at the top of your home page, then click on the "Applied Storytelling" icon (a nice cup of cappuccino!), then click on "Join this Group." I look forward to having you with us! Best wishes to you. STEVE
Greetings. I hope you are enjoying Professional Storyteller and are finding it useful. I know I am. I would love to have you participate in the group "Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story." I think your participation would be beneficial to us all! Best wishes to you. STEVE
You live in Cambridge, Ontario? No that's a story!

Here in Holland all is well. wo grandchildren, number three on the way. Lost of work. We moved to another small town and bought a evoirment friendly new build greenhouse. ( website might work. picture just after it was build.
I still go to Alden Biezen every year. Its always special to be there.

In september Dan Yashinsy was in Holland for a Storytellingfestival, he really liked my Shipmates of captain Mc Cow. So who knows.....
All the best.
