Share a Story - Change the World
Hello! I'm pleased to announce that I have received a Canada Council for the Arts grant to produce a series of storytelling videos.
My project is "Baba Raisa's House: Ukrainian Soul Stories." I tell ancient legends and original stories. Please check out my ongoing video tales on Youtube, and on my new project…
I'm four episodes into the podcast & receiving great feedback from listeners. The podcast is on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartradio, & other platforms. Each episode has an interview with a teller (local/regional) on how they became a teller, what types of stories they tell, & ask them to tell me a story. Most interviews I've released or scheduled have been with members of "Storytellers of New Mexico" (I live in Albuquerque), with the exception of Lois Keel, from this site.…Continue

I'm in the process of starting a storytelling podcast called "Old Father Williams - A Storytelling Man." The format's pretty simple: I interview a storyteller about how they became a teller, who (or what) their influences are, ask them to share a story, & then tell a story of my own. The definition of 'Storyteller' will be pretty broad, too, including writers, singers, poets, etc. I've got six interviews "in the can" so far, & am working with a local (Emmy winning!) musician…Continue

It's been seven years since I began researching the play THE HARDER COURAGE, six years since I began writing it, and now it's finally reaching the top of the mountain. Last year it was a finalist in the Ashland New Plays Festival and was invited to be one of the inaugural plays on the Play4Keeps podcast site. This year it will be workshopped at Theatre33 in Salem, Ore., and after that I feel confident that I will have an even stronger play.
There are two storytellers in the play: The…Continue

Once upon a time, Halloween & All Saints Day weren't just about costumes and parties and candy; they were about sweetly told family stories.
I am an Acadian ('Cajun,' or South Louisiana French American) by blood, earth , and disposition - my ancestors were Acadians, I was born within the culture, and I am blessed with a "joie de vie" personality. In my Cajun culture of South Louisiana (and many other cultures around the world, I have learned), late afternoon on 'All Hallow's Eve'…Continue

Sometimes the hardest part of how to create a story is being able to find the story starters. These anecdotes (and the little brother called the “float”) may at first seem hard to come by. Let me suggest to you a few things that you might use to find the bits and pieces of stories in your life.
Old photos are usually the first place that storytellers turn to when needing to get a story starter. This is true in both business and personal…

Just finished a Storytelling appearance in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. It was a rather satisfying experience. I had listeners come all the way from Sweden. That was rather satisfying. Delivered at least one of my original stories and that was rather well received.

Tis' the Season for Gifts in My Life
At Christmas one year, we began to talk Christmas gifts that were something clever—something with a worth more than dollars.
One of the best Christmases of those years included these gifts for me. My son, Chris, provided a blue fox ice scraper. My son, Dan, gave a small Wonder Woman action figure. I wore the “chicken god” just received from one of my nine bosses. There was an extravagantly wrapped jewel box package from my brother,…Continue

Life is like a ship; we are born in certain ports and travel to other ports. While traveling we met people on board. While stopping at the port, some stay, others disembark, and others come on board. Most times the travel is smooth; when storms appear, some slip off while others stay travel to the next port to disembark or continue travel. On and on…Continue
