Deconstructing the story: different techniques for connecting with your story.

I attended on Saturday at workshop at the Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh. The workshop was called "Connecting with stories". It was an interesting workshop conducted with Sarah Perceval. Throughout the workshop we were presented with different ways of connecting with the story which we had chosen to tell.

The mate tea

I love mate tea. I first started drinking it when I was in Argentina. It was prepared by some fiends of mine from Bahia Blanca and I soon became addicted.

If, however, you want to read the full legend of the vanilla, go to… Continue
