Hi, friend! I think that I will get my arm out of the sling this week and being to add strength exercises to the mobility exercises for my arm during therapy sessions. If I can't begin to move my arm soon - I will need mental therapy also. People have no idea how hard it is for a hyperactive storyteller to share stories with only one arm. I hope you are in good health and able to share a lot of tales during this time of holiday celebrations. Wishing you well, Mike Lockett
so good to hear from you!! :-) Thanks for adding me as a friend..AND...for sending this note!
I send good energy and prayers your way, Brother!
I've enjoyed your videos!!
Do keep in touch!
all the best to you!
I have been feeling a little puny lately and haven't been keeping up too much with all our new friends on PS. Looks like you have been busy posting. I am sure you have joined some of the groups. This is a great site for storytellers.
Hello you lovely Oneida storyteller... Just got back from tour # 4 of Taiwan - Released a new book there - The Basics of Storytelling - But can't read it - It's all in Chinese... Hope to get it into print here some time soon. Also released a new storytelling DVD for young listeners - Cover is in Chinese - but all the stories are in English - including a written version of each story inside the DVD case.
Hope your telling in Milwaukee wend well. I will be in a small town about 30 minutes from there in about 4 weeks. Wishing you well in all your endeavours.
Mike Lockett (Yay Yay Mike - Over in Taiwan the audiences called me Ye Ye - pronounced yay yay - meaning father of my father - or "Grandpa Mike")
Although only 1/8 Cherokee - I know how revered the term "grandfather" is when used with someone outside the family in Native American Cultures. It's like that there also - a lot of love for Ye Ye Mike - the storyteller. You know - getting old does have some perks!
Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Thank you for all your messages. Sorry I have been tardy in my replies. I have been traveling soooo much and recently had a death in the family (father-in-law) so life has been a little crazy for me lately. Not to mention the book deadlines!!! Anyway, congratulations on your nomination for your CD. I am proud of you! Best wishes always!
