This weekend in the capital of Virgina, story lovers have a wonderful opportunity to hear an entire evening of funny stories. Four tellers from both the VIRGINIA STORYTELLING ALLIANCE & THE TELL TALE HEARTS (Including yours truly) will be performing at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen, Saturday at 7:30 p.m. It's a do not miss event.

I find it interesting what books I gravitate towards when I go to the local library, as I did today, with my son Vincent. Today I got four books – two were about queens of England around (but before) the Tudor period, and two were about true crime. Queens and crime. Hmmm. Must mean something.
At any rate, I have already decided that one of the true crime books is not to my liking so am left with three books. The one I have started reading is the remaining true crime books and I am… Continue
I could have titled this post "Unexpected Changes." Quite unintentionally, I made the decision to resign from Beaver Creek Storytellers as their Director on May 21. Here's how it came about:
On April 10 I was finding it more and more difficult to breathe. I had had a cough and cold symptoms all week, but no fever so medicated myself with OTC meds. But that Friday, I actually used my husband's oxygen all day. When I got no better, I called the doctor who ordered me to the ER. I was… Continue
we have now finished running workshops with Jewish and Arab groups. First event was a visit to a Palestinian refugee camp in the West Bank called Tul Karem, where we met Palestinians and heard their experience, followed by a meeting of 50 people (25 from each side) who met in an olive grove to share experiences hosted by Combatents for Peace, a group of ex-warriors from both sides who have decided that the gun won't solve the problems. We met under a canopy and despite three… Continue
I was wondering if anyone ever comes across something they have written and put on line then forgotten all about them, I was looking through my friends website/blog. the other day and came across two of my tongue in cheek poems as I call them, it was before I developed the new Dodies Dream World, and I sent them to her to view and hadn't realised she had put them out for me.
I haven't had much time to do hardly any writing this past week, as I have to tell you all that my mother in law had… Continue
This year I am keeping a diary/blog of all the venues I'm telling at this year. Its called... The Diary of an Itinerant Storyteller
Its just been updated with trips to the British Museum, a Medieval fayre, a Castle and an Elizabethan Manor House. Fell free to check it out...
One hour ago, or was it one day ago, or one week ago? Anyhoooo - there was a time in a time when a man went walking.
He was a tall man, slim, with grey trousers and long black hair. He wore a hair shirt which dug deeply into his skin, and it pained him all the time. He could not take off the shirt for the hairs had grown into his skin and were embroiled within his being.
Walking along the road, he spied a tall tower.… Continue
Four-Paws, the kitten from the farm,
Is come to live with Betsey Jane,
Leaving the stack-yard for the warm
Flower-compassed cottage in the lane,
To wash his idle face and play
Among chintz cushions all the day.
Under the shadow of her hair
He lies, who loves him nor desists
To praise his whiskers and compare
The Tabby bracelets on his wrists
Have just spent four weeks with 13 other storytellers from 11 countries in all, working in Emerson college ~Sussex, UK. Two of our group Roi Gal-Or and Ethan Freidman are programme carriers for a great event - we are going to the Holy Land to work with Arab and Jewish storytellers, teachers, parents and young people. We will host workshops in various places, and at the end of May we are performing in Galilee at a Storytelling for Peace Festival in Harduf. for more info see… Continue

A Groovy Quote:- or stuck in a rut with a dragon!!!!!
Could this possible be the description of an old vinyl record, as In the Groove.
Of course it could also be the grooves made by the wheels of a cart, or even a scooter, anything really that when travelling through mud forms a groove. When Valcour was at the meeting in the Great Chamber after Baizals death. He left deep grooves with his talons on the table, just before he killed Yodroth.
(The Dragon Lords, Book One,… Continue
