Hi Marilyn, Thanks for your contact. I read that you live in San Diego, the current home of my son Ken and his family. He lives in the Del Mar Heights Road,Ca 92130, area. Sorry I can't be more spacific but that is what his postal address is. My wife and I have been there once before and we will visit again from Jan 22 to Feb 8, 2011. It would be great if we could meet up sometime especally if there are some storytelling events I could attend or take part in. Bristol has some great storytelling venues and I will be missing one of the biggest whilst I'm away. I usually take part in the "Story half marathon" when the group tell stories over 13 hours on one day in variuous locations! Regards, Martin Jefferd.
My head is dtill buzzing with stories! I had a great time at the conference and one of the highlights was meeting Storytellers from across the border. I do hope we meet again.
Yours in story,
Sorry to hear you can't make the Bay Area Storytelling Festival this year. I'll be doing some MCing in the amphitheater along with the usual production work.
Now, about this jousting tournement gig? Were you armed during the performance?
This year at Timp (wahoo!): Antonio Rocha, Motoko, Victoria Burnett, Susan Reed, Kevin Kling, Rex Ellis, Jay O'Callahan, Gay Ducey, Carmen Deedy and Bill Harley. Not bad, huh? Yeah, we're excited. But I can't wait to announce the lineup next year (our 20th). I can't say anything until after the Festival this year, but oh my holy goodness, it is going to be SO terrific. Thanks for the publicity. I'm working on getting all the stuff for the website. It should be up by the middle of May, if not before. What with adding our conferenc ein February, it seems like I am trying to catch up with the Festival and/or conference all year. But we've had next year booked for two years, so maybe this is the year I'll catch up (but I'm not holding my breath!) Hope to see you here! And you're right--or pictures do look kind of similar. Maybe I'll get lucky and be mistaken for you! ;-)! --Debi
Hey Marilyn! good to see you! How's the weather in beautiful San Diego? Since my daughter (who used to live there) moved up here, I don't get down there very often and my, oh my do I miss it. Will you be coming to Utah any time soon? We have a great lineup this year at Timpanogos, and Karen Ashton is back (although Karen Acerson is serving in Rome, Italy with her husband, who is the mission president). Give me a call if you blow thorugh town. -- Debi
