Our Joined Hands

We made the decision to be Artists, in spite of the many challenges, gladly.  We have lived, sacrificed in the name of art with few regrets.  But sickness doesn't respect art or artists.  This group is to help inform you of those of us who are facing very difficult days due to a major illness and provide an easy way for us to join hands to help them.  Our Joined Hands can make a difference.See More

"Just a thought... there is a book by Dianne De Las Casas  that is pure magic... it is called Scared Silly.  It is a marvelous resource for either "scared" or "silly".... or both!"

Dear Patricia:

I would love for you to start a discussion in the YES! group on Professional Storyteller since you have such a wonderful conversation going about telling to 4-7-year-olds.

Could I count on you to do that? Then I will feel better to share my thoughts rather than the Comment section.

Until we tell again,

Rachel Hedman

I have a background in teaching too! I am a puppeteer that incorporates songs into all of my shows (mini-musicals) my shows are really all about the participation and seems like we have a lot in common. I wish you weren't so far away I would love to see a show.

Hi Pam!
Sounds like your process might be making more progress than mine. I work full time as a kindergarten teacher and lately, that has taken up much of my time with spring projects and IEPC meetings. I have managed to record two tracks of guitar for a "back up" of a song for one part of my CD. I have fewer gigs planned for this summer than last summer, so that may also help with my time management and getting things done. It's all a matter of goal setting and proper planning. I just love this site, because reading what other people are doing really motivates me energizes me, and keeps me going when I might feel more like taking a nap!! Thanks for checking in on me. It's great to hear that you are also making step by step progress. Next time, I will check in on you:)

I just wondered how the CD process is coming for you? I go into the studio this coming Tuesday to record my first CD. I have worked very hard to get to this point - rehearsing, photo shoot, etc., etc., etc.... I can't wait to get it done.

Keep me up on your progresss.

Hi Patricia:

Happy Easter and I hope you find the lucky egg!

Thanks for the warm greetings. Over the last few years since I took my part time telling to a full-time status - I have enjoyed corresponding and learning from new storytelling friends. I love this format where I don't have to worry about being spammed - where I can trust the individuals writing to me! I also like seeing the pictures - to help me get to know folks better when I attend national events.

Best to you!

Mike Lockett, The Normal Storyteller
