Yes that would be great. Approximately 1400 words is good with a brief bio of yourself and a photo in jpeg.  Our next deadline is the second week in December. Thanks, we love to hear from storytellers all over the world.

Hi Susan,

Well, I can't really be a maggid, as I'm technically Ukrainian. I dropped out near the end of my conversion. You could say I chose pysanky over Passover. But if you want to adopt me, okay :-D

I consider myself a kobzar, which is the Ukrainian name for a traveling storyteller. See the article on my home page.

Kind regards,

Hi Susan,

My last name was originally Jewish: Shtohun, which I've been told is a variation of Shtein. It first got changed when my grandfather moved to my Ukrainian grandmother's village to marry her. He was the only Jew there. The name got Ukrainianized to Stohyn (which means "moaning"). I changed it legally to Stone in Canada. So from "stone" in Yiddish to something more fancy, back to "stone" in English.

We are from the province of Galicia, near Lviv. Of course, the hardest hit region during the July flood :-(

My first name means "paradise" in Ukrainian. So my name is really Paradise Stone or Paradise Moaning. The latter which I plan to use for a CD.

Hi Susan,

I got your email re: collecting seniors' stories. I've been listening to seniors all my life---I was raised by my grandmother my first seven years.

Above is a link to the Canadian Broadcasting Network's radio show, "Outfront." They give great tips on how to collect stories in the community, including specifics on documenting and recording techniques.

You're doing a worthwhile thing.

All the best,
Reisa Stone

You might like to become familiar with John Walsh's BibleTelling from the Old testament. He did a really good job making it easier to tell 36 of the major stories in the Old Testament. You are right - we can share that part of the Good Book!

Fox's show was the first time I was able to come out of my shell and meet bunches of other storytellers from all over the midwest. What fun! Prior to that time I had always been "locked up" or at least felt like it - as I was a teacher and administrator in the public schools and always responsible for some event when other storytelling events were being held. Now, I am free to travel and see some of the best the USA has to offer with the performances of great storytellers. Mike

Hi, Susan - I drove almost through your back yard yesterday on my way to and from my home in Normal, IL to Antioch, IL - WAY north on 94 - just south of the Wisconsin border. I don't think you have a north-south route in the Chicago area that is not under construction. I think you need to make up some special traffic stories that includes hints for getting to and from storytelling gigs and maintaining your sanity. Bets regards, Mike Lockett (The fellow from Normal, IL who calls himself - The Normal Storyteller).
