Need Input about Business Licenses for Storytellers ASAP!

I tell in a lot of cities and counties. Today I got a letter from a city asking if I had a license to conduct business in that city. Surely I can't be required to get a business license in every single city and county? I'd go broke! I'm not making much as it is. I'm looking at taking on another job now because I'm not making much. Does anyone have any information about this? Please share! What do you do? Thanks for any input!

Stories of America's heroes

I am excited to be telling several times this summer stories of American Patriots. There seems to be a lot of need for stories that celebrate America; that teach and encourage public service, good deeds and perserverance. Our country has a wonderful history of people who though not perfect, helped build a nation that is strong and true and is still regardless of the current press evaluation - the leader of the free world and the hope of all the others.

I am telling about Ben… Continue

Storytelling is Like Play-Doh

Storytelling Is Like Play-Doh

I have made my weekly trip to the library and carted home another bag of storybooks. Always in search of new material or different views of presenting old classics I pour through the children’s section savoring memories and new treasures. Twice a year our library holds a benefit book sale and towns people donate books from their collections and a garage fills. Come the appointed weekends it… Continue

Corporate Storytelling Techniques: Five Ways to Convey Your Passion

Stories are being told about your company all the time. Unless you have never had a customer, someone somewhere is talking about your company. When they do so, they are speaking with passion either for or against your business. You need to have your passionate stories ready to add to that conversation. To create raving fans in your business, you need to be a raving business.

When a customer experiences your company, they leave with an impression. If they were offended, hurt or…

Cycling Journal Update: Different kind of story (Gneiting)

Crazy, but traveling across America has cultivated a different kind of storytelling: photography. Capturing the images and landscapes of this odyssey is bliss, especially for us visual thinkers. While the storytelling gigs are fairly sparse, we're scratching out a life on the road and loving it. Today we sit in North Dakota. Next week, Minnesota. Journal updates, with narrative and pics are available here.

The Rich Man and the Poor Man, not as sad as yesterday's you'll be pleased to hear. xxx

The Rich Man and the Poor Man

A page made by Seligor of things that maybe you won't know of, till now.

The Rich Man and the Poor Man

A rich man and a poor man sat beneath the pink and lemon blossom trees of Spring.

The rich man said:

"Ah the scent of these trees gives me a headache. I am not too dull a fellow that my mind does not tell me how beautiful it is. But then I begin to think of how I might buy up this land so that the trees are exclusively mine and… Continue

MARIKO, The story of many children who live this way. Willowdown


Mariko - san

A child was born on a rubbish tip. Its mother was the shell of an old broken fridge and her father was a rusty old pick up truck.

Her name was Mariko-san and she had thick black curly hair, golden-brown skin, eyes like glorious stars and a little mouth like a rose-bud.

When she smiled, which was most of the time, her face was a garden of beautiful flowers. When she cried, which was not very often, little silver tears fell from her eyes and watered… Continue

Wish you coulda been there.

I love the mountains. Just being within the mountains makes me realize how small and insignificant I really am. I had never seen mountains before until February of last year. Of course I had seen them on postcards and in movies, but I had never stood outside and looked out at real mountains, the tips shrouded in thick white mist. I had the great privilege to see them again this year for the second time.

The Smoky Mountain Storytelling Festival in Pigeon Forge, TN was amazing. Each… Continue

Words leave my mouth and hang for a cinematic moment before my eyes and then spin crazily away like leaves on the autumn wind as I desperately try to catch them. I know if I don't capture them, the words will hide from me forever - popping up now and again - never in the correct order and never in their first, perfect sentence. These words - both blessings and curses.

When I have this dream, it is always worse than finding myself naked in a lecture hall.

Hi From Brisbane Australia

Spending time recording and editing oral history stories of environmental activists this week. It's for the 40th anniversary of the Queensland Conservation Council coming up in July. Hearing some great stories and its bringing back lots of memories.

On the weekend, I'll be encouraging people to tell their 'Water Smart City' stories at the GreenFest in the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens. Should be fun and I get to combine my passions for storytelling and the environment.
