The White Cat
Once upon a time, there was a king who was growing older and older. He knew he was going to have to retire soon, but he really didn’t want to. Working for him were some advisors who liked to cause trouble. They began to tell lies about how his three sons were plotting against him and would send him soon to a rest home and never, never visit him. The King believed them and thought, “Well, I’ll fix those conniving sons of mine!”
He called in all three of the… Continue

“Hans in Luck
”, a German tale from the Brothers Grimm, is as loaded with irony as its title character is loaded with material possessions that people would normally consider a blessing, but in his case prove to be burdens. His situation reminds us of our own; having left the stationary lifestyle behind years ago, we ironically feel much richer for not having so much “stuff” to weigh us down.
We present the… Continue

The Road Not Taken
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 5
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same, 10
And both that morning… Continue

The yolk is golden on my plate, like silk floss
Japanese potatoes and eggs
make me feel strong and lithe like
a Gerber baby
My bed, where I spend lots of time these days,
has become my dining table and my desk
Colored pens and paints, papers and writings
draped over the edges,
some like fallen stars lying on the floor
Looking out my big window I see a… Continue

The Music for the comment is on our page Radio player. Continue
Long before I became a storyteller I would often talk to our audiences about the history, inspiration, context and folklore of the tunes we would play. I also feel that melodic music has an emotive language or communication to it. Many melodies imitate the language of the culture they come from and they communicate a great deal. I should say that among Celtic musicians it is jokingly said that all the love songs are sad and all…

With all the budget cuts taking place right now, it is unwise for storytellers to rely on arts councils, arts commissions and other sources of work we've enjoyed in the past. This recession is taking a toll on everyone, and performers are certainly feeling the pinch. We have to get even more creative when we drum up business, particularly if we want to continue to pay the bills. Since I am an optimist, I continue to keep my eye out for interesting, and untapped possibilities. My most recent… Continue

Here's another interview I did over at BlogTalk radio on the "Powerful Patient" show. She has a reach of about 20,000 listeners, so it's a lot of people to which to speak of storytelling.
About 45 minutes on "communicating with your children" with emphasis on how storytelling is part of that in general and some about my DaddyTeller specifically.…
