Directing and Nurturing a Storytelling Group - Post #5, The End by Mimi Rockwell

I could have titled this post "Unexpected Changes." Quite unintentionally, I made the decision to resign from Beaver Creek Storytellers as their Director on May 21. Here's how it came about:



On April 10 I was finding it more and more difficult to breathe. I had had a cough and cold symptoms all week, but no fever so medicated myself with OTC meds. But that Friday, I actually used my husband's oxygen all day. When I got no better, I called the doctor who ordered me to the ER. I was… Continue

Blogging For The Fun Of It

I've been away from PS for awhile again due to putting lots of time and creativity into developing a website and two blogs on Google's blogspot. The URL for the website is http://www.bristolstorytellers.org/ One blog is closely connected to it and is about our local Bristol group http://beavercreekstorytellers.blogspot.com/ The other blog is my own personal blog and is about my home, the 84 acres of woods we live in, the flora and fauna, my pets including my husband, my daily comings and… Continue

Old Christmas, Jan. 6, Celebrated in Bristol, VA

Hello All - I've been gone for awhile due to several events and issues. The last I posted was in November, then devoted my time to publicity for our Old Christmas program and preparing for a vacation my husband, Rocky, and I were taking over Christmas. We returned the very end of Dec. and on New Year's Day Rocky came down with bronchitis. He is a cancer survivor of 4 years and has the chronic condition of COPD. He seemed to be recovering by Jan. 6, our Old Christmas celebration but chose not to… Continue

A personal note from Mimi

Hi! I want to brag a bit and let you all know that I am going to be in Audubon, Iowa (between Omaha and Des Moines) this weekend to celebrate with my uncle, and others, his 100th birthday. I am so happy to report that he is alert and upright, although occasionally he uses a wheelchair. He has a wonderful sense of humor, and he is as surprised as anyone that he has lived a century. I can't wait to hear what he has to say about it.



Think of all the changes between 1908 and 2008!!!… Continue

"I Fell" - A Story Poem by Mimi Rockwell

I stepped off the deck down into a planter bed

to plant some lilies of the valley,

I stumbled and over I went

down into the dirt bordering the planter



Into the edge of the forest,

Into the laurels,

Their pinked white blooms and leafy branches

thick beside and above me

Like a wedding bower--or the bower over someone layed to rest.



My nose was in the verdant mulch of the ground,

My glasses angled across the apple of my cheek,

I… Continue

Hi Mimi. Thanks for your kind words. We can learn much from the animals in our lives that can become our greatest teachers. I visited your fine state a few years ago and fell in love with it.

Isn't that fascinating, Mimi. I'd no idea. Being Ukrainian, I celebrate by the Julian. I get two Christmases as well! Not to mention starting celebrations on the Winter Solstice, December 21st.
These holidays are punctuated by Maalox Day :-D

Hi Mimi;

Actually, October's Newsletter is all about ghost and scary stories. How to jump an audience and timing will also be part of that topic. I am thrilled so many people are liking the newsletter. Thank you. At first, I had my doubts but now... seeing the good it is doing... wonderful.

I hope your husband is well and I know that COPD is a tough one. You guys have my prayers.

I do have some written work about ghost stories, a bit... but I haven't published it yet. Timing hasn't been good to do everything at once.

Stay in touch, you can see me telling on You Tube by searching... creacy, soup

happy Sunday

Buck

Hi Mimi,

Good to see you back! Is Old Christmas another name for the one celebrated by the Julian calendar?

Hey there Mimi

I like your page, I have been away a bit too and will need to focus and get back involved. Are you getting my newsletter? What do you think of it? I would love some feedback.

...and so, here I am back on this website.....time and actions sometimes keeps a person from checking in. I just finished doing a presentation of Mary Todd Lincoln...and what a joy to be her. I figured she was short, dark haired, chubby and demented...wonderful typecasting!!! but to place her in front of women as a real woman....who bore such sorrow and endured such hatred and probably suffered PMS with her migraines and then lose her husband...his blood spilling into her lap as she screamed kill me too for I will never survive without him. Then....her son puts her in an asulym for inheritance purposes. The letters she wrote while there prove she was not insane and got her an early release. it is time to make history true......cleanse the history we teacvh the kids and make those people real.

Hi Mimi:

I thought about you guys on Jan. 6th. I was afarid to commit. I have a damaged achilles tendon in my left heel. I'm under doctor's care for it and thought I would have to have surgery by then. My doctor is still trying to treat it with physical therapy and time in hopes that it may heal itself. Anyway, that's why I never got back to you about the event. Please keep me in mind for future events. I am so close to Bristol that I'd love to come.

Take care,
Pam

Hi Mimi, thank you for thinking of me. I have heard about the workshops and am watching to see if I can get to any of them. The one in December falls on the same date that I will be in northern VA, making fruitcakes with my sisters. Maybe one of the others will work. I hope you're keeping well and warm.
