"It has been such a long time since I have posted here. This is the time I am led to contribute, Michael. I am praying for peace, healing, and strength for you and for those who care about you. God bless you and the many lives you touch."
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
"Yikes! I didn't mean to send anyone to wine tasting country! But, if you type www.thevirtualvine.com, you end up with a teaching website with a large variety of teaching themes and units that could keep you busy for days looking up links to…"
"There is always The Little Old Lady Who Wasn't Afraid of Anything. It lends itself to lots of audience participation as the kids chant along with the story and it is very easily retold. It can be found on Amazon. I make stick puppets…"
I have not tried this myself, but I may do so in the future. My son is in a band that recently raised enough money to go to L.A.
to produce the album of their dreams. They are there right now and the costs…"
"Just said a prayer for all of you also... what you are doing is a good and noble thing that will touch more lives than you will ever have knowledge of. Keep the good faith and all will go better than you imagine. :)"
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.
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.
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.
