Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Glad you made it to the site. Your work sounds wonderful - I would love to take a "Wonder Voyage!" Greece is on my list of places to see before I kick the bucket... I hope you enjoy our community. Check out the groups and jump in on some discussions. It's a lively neighborhood. Best wishes!

"small pangs of envy" is a bit off the mark - nothing "small" about the ones that attacked me.....
OK - Confession is over now, and I will continue....
This is a remarkable site and, as G&P said, you, too, will make connections w/ some great folks (and I suspect that many of them will either want your job or a position as an ace assistant).
When things settle down a bit on your end, I would really like to learn more about what you're doing and how it all came about.
Yet, you consider yourself first a storyteller - wow . . . THERE's a story right there.
Check out the various pages to see how they can help you discover many other great tellers, and help them discover you.
This is sort of a 'big boy' version of Show and Tell - post to the Photo and Video Pages, use your audiofiles/CDs/DVDs to let us know what and how you share your stories. Join discussions on the many Forum topics, become part of those various Groups focusing on multiple story-related topics. There are presently 28 of us in the Biblical Storytelling group, and we're one of the smaller groups, but it's an awesome collection of folks. Other groups focus on things like Marketing, Hosting Tellers, College gigs, Youth Tellers, Fringe Festivals, Ghost Stories, etc.
Anyway, you've probably "got a mountain to climb" (don't we all?) in some exotic place, so I'd best end this. I'm glad you're with us, and I really do look forward to hearing more from/of/and about you and your work, as you have time. I surely wish you continued fulfillment, impact and success on your journey and, again, send my greetings and Welcome!
Hey there! Probably should have given everyone on this list a caveat before sending the invitation to you. Warning--knowing what Shawn does for a living may lead to small pangs of envy! Welcome to the gang. In the very short time since we signed up, we've made connection with some great folks!
