I'm interviewing storytellers on Talk Story TV, but that's as close as I have gotten so far.

Thanks, Clare.  I will follow up on this contact.   I will only be in Argentina for a quick day, but I hope to make a connection.  For tellers, it only takes a moment.  Or hours.  Do you ever come to the US Northwest?  It'd be fun to meet.

Hey Clare, I saw you perform in Jonesborough this year! My Professional Storyteller ning world keeps getting smaller. We didn't get to talk, but my friend Mark had the pleasure of gifting you a belt. I hope you liked it. His story of your conversation was wonderful.

Woo-hoo! Heard today that you'll be at Tennessee's National Storytelling Festival this October 2011. I can't wait to see you tell live after being limited to your online videos.
