Thanks, Marc. I am going to find a copy of that cartoon. I really appreciate the contributions and ideas. Hope I can return the favor as part of this group.

Hi Marc, I had not gone to the tandem group for awhile. I have been too busy editing and publishing my book on tandem: "Team Up! Tell In Tandem!" As to your July question. Yes, my husband and I have done some gender bending in our tandems. The best example is my becoming many of the young boys in our stories. I also am sometimes a male monster. It works well, and is fun to do. It also allows us to choose stories that have more than two people easier. Hope you are still giving this a try. How is it? Nice to meet you. Jonatha Wright

Thanks Marc, ironically enough I am heading down to Medicine Hat this morning for a couple of days! I will definitely check out the discussions upon my return to my computer.

Thanks for starting this group -- my Jewish roots have been honed by the Jewish stories I tell and research.
Yours in stories,

Hi Marc,
Thank you for the message. Yes, the 'exact' picture is always in the eyes of the beholder and different people interprate what is going on in different ways. Just like in storytelling, what plot will be presented out of the entire narrative is the role of the teller and what he or she think their audiences want to hear. The media does not really tell a story, it is not balanced within a responsiable form. What would "balanced" be? the same ammount of footage? the same themes? the media in general does not seek to present the ins and outs of events. It looks for strong fast drama, use and discard.
Cest la vie. Sabbat Shalom, Limor.

I'm always looking for new stories- especially regarding Tikkun Olam. All suggestions welcome! I have to prepare something for our interfaith story circle for this week. Muriel

I'm very excited to connect with other storytellers interested in Jewish storytelling.. While I tell many kinds of stories, Jewish tales are definitely my passion. - can't wait for the discussions to begin!
