New Year's Bonfire

Every year my family lights a bonfire on New Year's Eve to light in the new year. As part of our tradition, we write down the things we're worried about--health, money, family, work problems, etc--and we toss those troubles into the fire.

Well I'm just about everywhere these days. Retired from the library so can go and just keep on going. Leave a week from today for Asia and Europe and Bahrain. Was in Africa and Europe all fall. Jenny and Nat are in Bonn, so I have a home away from home there in between gigs. Lovin' it!

Hey, Granny Sue!
I read your comment on the Storytelling Presenters' page that you help find storytellers for libraries in your area. Please feel free to look over my site at for your future storytelling needs. I am a 33-year veteran educator who always told stories part-time until my retirement 3 years ago. I am now available to travel across the country - and even have a storytelling book coming out in Taiwan this August. (I also travel internationally.) Best regards, Mike Lockett, The Normal Storyteller
