The symposium in Denmark was last year, in 2009, so just enjoy your travels. Thhis year it will be all Scandinavian near Stockholm, from 4th - 10th og July.
It would be lovely to meet you in Denmark. Please tell me if I can be of any help to you here.
Hi Karen, lovely to hear yir celebrating Samhain over in Canade.I'm impressed that you know so many Celtic stories. Hope the celebration goes well, fingers crossed some of the wee spirits n tricksters might even turn up tae hear the stories :-)
Gee I never really thought about the story going out into the world that way.
Would you be telling it third person? I think it would be fine to tell the story and it will be interesting to see how it will evolve.
We are coming into our busy season in Bellingham as we move into the seasonal telling of tales around all the holidays. We are a pretty open group so we celebrate everybody's holidays which gives us a huge volume of tales to tell. We strive to celebrate cultural diversity through story, song, and sometimes dance. It's great fun and keeps us learning new material every year.
Be well and good telling.
I hope to see you when I visit your area of the world soon. My grandfather was an engineer on an american railroad called the L & N, out of New Orleans and Moible, and I have been wanting to travel the trans-Canadian RR all of my life as he talked about with such awe and respect. Keep me a cup of tea hot !
Thanks for your appreciation!
There will be new chances to meet the european storytellers.
The Oslo meeting is over, 60 storytellers from 18 countries came together for three days and a great meeting. Next year this time we will meet in Switzerland again. Until then groups are working on making the organisation for european storytelling. I will be back on professional storyteller with more information
Best wishes, Mats
Greetings. What great work you're doing. Welcome to this wonderful site. I wonder if you wouldn't consider joining the group Applied Storytelling: the Power of Stories? We would love to have you there! Best wishes to you. STEVE
What are the objects you are holding in your hands in the picture? They look like mallets of some kind. Are you a marimba player? I play in a marimba bandcalled Wood Vibrations and the bass mallets we use look quite a bit like what you have there in the photo. Anyway, welcome to the site. Let's be friends? Lawrence.
What a remarkable 'tale,' itself, your ABOUT ME makes - I think, for me, the closing paragraph is most exciting/enticing. "Good Show," and "Break a Leg!" come the 16th. What a great concept you all have come up with. Are the kids just 'going crazy' at the opportunity? When are you able to work with them during the day?
OK, sorry - got a little carried away there, but I do hope you are able to share more about it in the not-too-distant future.
