As soon as Tammy mentioned your name, I told her about rooming with you at Bellingham. That was fun. I wish you could have been at the Honolulu conference. It was a real winner. I enjoyed having Tammy stay with me. We had a good time together.
Hey, friend - sorry to miss you at the National Conference as well... my fault totally!
Like an idiot - I hurt my arm... trying to start what proved to be a dead mower. I had already torn my rotator cuff and need surgery - but put off the surgery until after my Taiwan trip. (We are in Taiwan as I write this note.)
The ride to Gattlinburg would have been about 11 hours + I could not take meds while driving back and forth. I would have had to leave early to catch my flights here anyhow - so I made a tough decision and opted to stay home and rest up for the trip. Good thing, too!
We have been from one end of this country and back again several times already... eight 3-hour workshops, the release of my new book, The Basics of Storytelling, the release of my new DVD - 12 stories for young children (not named yet for the US Market), three 2-hour workshops, two 1 1/2 hour storytelling concerts, a benefit program for low income children, and meetings with US and Taiwan Dignitaries + Radio programs and more. What a trip - but without the rest ahead of time - I would never have made it.
Back at you later when I am home in the states. Take care. Mike Lockett

Mary Jo! I just love you to death. Give me a call and we can talk... Mary Hamilton might also be a great resource for you too. But I will be glad to help where I can. Thanks for speaking well of me. Love you to pieces.
Mary Jo!!! You're hurting my neck, having to look sideways at you like that. hahahahaha I do like the idea of a retreat either this Fall 2008 or Spring 2009. I'll think about it. You'll come again, wontcha?
