Hello. I welcome you to P.S. I left a reply for your discussion "high tide and low tide" before I read your homepage, so I did not know what your storywork has been. You and I certainly have had different experiences, and walked in different worlds, but I think our unconscious minds spoke to each other in between and within the lines of what we posted. I love when that happens!!! Mimi
Oh yes.....I do remember...and I so enjoyed myself up at Procter with all of you.......so nicely run, and friendly ....and I had a chance to have fun with the audience and also watch and learn! I was gratefull for the chance to preform there.
I hope there will be a #10 for you Barry and the other storytellers.
I am fine.....traveling and telling stories and meeting so many wonderful folk and finding wonderful stories!
'Tis a small world!
thanks for the warm welcome...we allhave a bit of the dragon in us.......my stories run the guantlet of all kinds of mythe, legend and folktale.......and when I sayshay out to preform.......I am just loving it and my audioence......one time i was waiting to go on stage and was pacing as usual, we all get the jitters and this was 600 people......which toi tell the truth....I still like to walk an audience......see them up personal...but anyway, I was dressed in full gear....whip, knives,keyes and a 5 and a half foot sword on my back, my olde friend Excalibar....and a almost 6 foot handcarved dragon staff..(She is the dragon of the north...gentle she be) and a man said.." wooo-Weeeee...I have never seen a woman outfitted like you" to which I quipped.."then you, sir, have never seen a subsitute teacher."
lololo...ya have to love them all............each day a gift! each time a chance to connect!
for 13 yrs I have gone on word alone for PR.......the best kind!
I'm sorta with Buck on the dragons (I'm pretty sure your 5 Great Ones do not include "Puff, the Magic Dragon," right? - sorry about that, but I'm an ol' Folkie from . . . a while ago....)
Anyway, what you do really does sound interesting...and mystical, appropriately enough. I, too, want to encourage you to share your material with us by taking advantage of the multiple pages on this site which will allow you to share with us via Video, DVDs, CDs, audiofiles, Blogs, etc.
You, yourself, must have a world of personal tales to tell simply based on your experiences as a traveling storyteller for 13 years - do you share such tales in your programs?
This awesome site is the brainchild of the one-and-only Dianne de Las Casas, to whom we all owe a real debt of gratitude; this place has been such a boon to so many, it is truly remarkable.
I'm glad you found your way to this site, wish you ongoing growth and continued success in your telling, look forward to your contributions to the site and, again, send my greetings and Welcome!
I really want to see that dragon. I only know a couple of simple dragon tales... would love to know more. Check out the great groups we have here at PS. Something for everyone, I think, if not.. start on for yourself... let me know and I will come join it. You can upload video, audio on your own page and upload pictures and so forth... let us hear you tell and get to know you a bit. There are also great forums.
