How can we Play?

The BBC recently ran a program called "Imagine: Art Is Child's Play" for those that didn't see it put simply they referred to the importance of the spirit of child's play in art - looking at people like Tracy Emin.

The reason this struck a chord with me is because I had just returned from a week long storytelling course at Marley Bank (Ben Haggerty's School of Performance Storytelling) which was totally devoted to the theme of exploration and play.

Learn the Art of Marketing in Our Next July Telecourse.

So, you "jumped and the net did (not) appear?"

You "followed your passion" and get hopelessly lost and broke?

You "did what you want and the money did (not) follow?"

To succeed as an artist, passion is not enough. And blind faith

is bankrupt. It's not enough to "love" storytelling.

Let me coach and teach you how to master your marketing as an artist.

Our next artist's…

Sucker Day

About 60 years ago, a gentleman by the name of F. Bam Morrison, armed with a fistful of posters, arrived in the little town of Wetumka, Oklahoma, to promote the coming of "Cole’s Brothers Circus." He told the town fathers that the circus had an empty date or two on its calendar, and it would just love to put on a late summer show in Wetumka.…

The Colours of Hope, Storytelling Theatre, June 19th 2010, Emerald, Victoria, Australia

Medieval Fair Story #3

Sunday, the final day of the 2010 Medieval Fair in Norman, Oklahoma. A lad of about 14 swaggers into the compound, and in a mock aggressive manner, challenges the King (me) to a fight!
"Lad," says I, "the King does not fight his own battles. That's why he has champions."
"Well, says he, 'then bring…

Medieval Fair Story #2

Saturday, Day 2 of the 2010 Medieval Fair. The weather was ... varied. It included sunshine, rain, fog, drizzle, sleet, and a little snow. Springtime in Oklahoma. All we could do was try and remain cheerful and dry. Neither was easy, but we were doing a pretty good job. Late in the day again, I was sitting on the King's throne, under our tent's canopy, when a little girl wandered into the compound and asked if she could ask me a… Continue

The Story Behind the Story

I was in my car between Bolton and Hudson, MA, listening to NPR on the local radio station when I heard a storyteller tell a story about a Jewish man who dreamt one night he died and met God.

To put it in a nutshell, he was terrified by the prospect. God asked him, “What did you do with your life”? The man went down the typical list. He had been a respectful son, faithful husband, good father, honest businessman, trustworthy friend, and an ample provider to his family. He had… Continue

Medieval Fair Story

I'm the King of the Norman, Oklahoma, Medieval Fair. It's a three day event that takes place every Spring. This year, we were at the end of Day One and finishing up packing things away for the night when a little girl and her grandmother entered The Royal Compound. The little girl, about 5 years old, was absolutely gorgeous ... curly blonde hair and sky-blue eyes.…
