Under the Influence


Yes, I know this Spring Equinox missive is late. I was in Warwick, Rhode Island at “Sharing the Fire,” the New England region’s annual storytelling conference, when the moment of transformation (1:32 EDT) arrived. In what has been a long, dark winter of sorrow and loss, spring could not have come too soon.

In fact, at 1:32 EDT I was 20 minutes into my workshop on “Framing Stories as Advocacy” and quite possibly at the very moment where the woman said, “I didn’t… Continue

soft, clear and calm, thunder and lightening. She was a strong young woman who

loved the circle of days, of seasons, and never questioned the workings of the

Rosy Glow or False Dawn...Scottish Storytelling Centre's Conference on the Future of Storytelling in Ireland, England, Scotland and Northern Ireland

I ran a mini workshop and told a couple stories but the faces of my listeners told stories all their own. Many folks were struggling just to put food on the table while their husbands or wives were on active duty. Others were facing the challenge of readjusting once they returned home.…
