Hello Richelle,
Sme news about myself, I have been in some form of public communication for over 30 years. I started as an electronics instructor at the Federal Aviation Agency Acadamy in Oklahoma city. I have been a certified Lay Speaker in the United Methodist Church. As part of these activities I started using stories as examples of my main topic. Along the way I have joined Toastmasters International, I am currently taking acting lessons at a local community theather and as part of the spring showcase whidh is coming up in two weeks I will be telling one of my original stories entitled "Full of Blarney." At one of the Toastmaster's regional conferences I gave a presentation entitled, "Speaking, Storytelling and Acting,"

Hello, Richelle! Well, you certainly caught my interest in your profile-- I love Eudora Weltly and your monologue sounds so enriching! Thank you for inviting me as a friend...will enjoy seeing your blogs, here.

Yes, I think that's what attracts me to Southerners and Southern literature. Also the sense of fate.

I was startled to realize how much it reminds me of Ukrainian literature. I made a connection when I found out Joseph Conrad was Ukrainian. Konrad was his middle name. Last name: Korzeniowski. Taras Shevchenko, our national hero, had a similar sense of detail and fatefulness. And I love that our national hero is a poet---just as you have Tennessee Williams Day.

On the West Coast of Canada, we don't have days commemorating writers :-(

Hi Richelle,

I love Southern writers, and would like to see you perform. What is it about the South that produces such great art?
