New Releases for The Normal Storyteller

Hello storytelling friends,

I wanted to share the release of two brand new storytelling products. Last week I released a new book called The Basics of Storytelling. That is the good news. The bad news is that it is only available in Taiwan and in Chinese. So - those of us who read only English can only enjoy the pictures and guess at the content. (well - I DO know the content and have it stored on my trusty computer. I will now be seeking a publisher to put out the book in English.)… Continue

Oh my goodness, some of "us" do have a rough life!!! I know, I know, it's a rough life, but somebody's got to live it! Seriously, I'm glad to hear that you had a nice vacation while the rest of us poor souls are trying to stay warm in this frozen tundra!! I'm glad that arm is moving as it should - take care of it and take care of you! - Pam

Hey Mike:

How's that shoulder? It should be about good as new by now. We've had snow today. It sure is pretty on the mountain tops.

Take care,

Thanks for the welcome, Mike. And I'm very glad you've enjoyed my Storytelling Resources website - it's been a labour of love.

I've always felt that although people often get worried when they feel they're not normal, in fact very few people indeed are actually 'normal'. But now I know why - hardly any of them come from your neck of Illinois!

I am a teacher in China, I teach french. I find it very nice too to get connected with people all around the world and when you travel the map of possibilities widens.
I don't speak chinese either, except for the necessary situations. Xi Feng means West Wind and is a shortening of Si Di Fe Ni (Stéphanie)

Thanks a lot for your comment. I have never been yet in Taiwan, as I am quite far away, in Sichuan. They have a funny accent there.

I don't tell much stories, I have a project with children but as for adults, they don't seem quite interested. Here they call me Xi Feng :-) But in Kenya my name was Rain.

Hey Mike:

I hear you're recovering from rotator cuff surgery. Been there- done that. I had a torn right cuff a couple of years ago. My shoulder aches for you! Physical therapy worked wonders for me. My best to you - I'll pray for a speedy recovery.
