My last day...my first day.

Yesterday was my last day at the job.



Today is my first day as a full time professional storyteller. Whatever that means.



I can't believe it took me until I was 42 to finally do what I was born to do. Now don't misunderstand me. I have been telling stories since the day I could talk. My mother was always saying, "Kimmy, that's not quite the way it happened." And yet the family would make me tell the story over and over.

Help...I'm going to jump.

So how do you know? At what point does the line become clear between here and over there?



I am tired. I work 50 hours Monday through Thursday at a desk and then hit the road on Thursday afternoon.Travel, tell, and travel back. Sunday night I stumble through the door and at 6am the alarm goes off. Back to the grind.



My job is great...but the time has come. I can feel it.I have some friends who tell full time who are urging me to make the jump, but they are in way different… Continue

Hi Kim, I'm glad to know that you will be returning to the stage again in Laurinburg next April for their storytelling festival - Festival of Carolina. I hope your storytelling travels are going well and I'll look forward to seeing you next April.
Take care, Sylvia Payne

Hi Kim, I just wanted to connect with you before the Cape Girardeau festival. We are both regional storytellers. I'm looking forward to meeting you this year.
I am from Kansas City, MO, but have been to Tennessee many times for the National Festival.
Talk to you soon, I hope. Joyce Slater

Hey you! It was great to finally truly connect with you in J'boro! Here's to the next time we get to swap stories and explore cemeteries :-)

Hey Kim,
I hear you're coming to Idaho in Feb! So cool, we'll definitely have time to connect one way or the other. I'll look for you on the streets of J'boro this week.

Kim, pleasure to see you this weekend, and yes I did my parental duty and brought my teenage son to embarrass him, however he killed me when he turned to me after your story and whispered, "Dad, what's a dead 'sea-squirrel'? Thought I should share. My best, Anthony B. p.s. next time you are at the beach, watch out for those sea-squirrels.

Hey Kim,

I was talking about open tunings either open D or open G where just strumming the guitar gives you a chord, and you sound cool without even trying. Free lesson next time I see you!

Hey Kim!
Our house seems so quiet and empty since you left this AM. Hope the car is rolling steadily and safely. What a full time during your visit. These were days lived well, very well. See you next week in Williamsburg. I'll be the guy in periwig, knee breeches and cod-piece,. Can I say that on this space? Maybe not. Later.
Les
