Happiness is Monarch Butterfly Away

I caught one. Only one. But I did it. Became a member of the Teacher Monarch Network and they led the way. It was hard trying to find those critters, and after all that training, I was glad I found a fecund field. But only one in hundreds of milkweeds? Yeah, only one. I'm told the population was decimated by a hail storm in Mexico last winter.

I brought it to the classroom in DC with my homemade rearing cage the Network taught me to assemble. Our little caterpillar just today…

UNESCO: storytelling as intangible cultural heritage...what if???

Hey All



Birgit Lehner and her storytelling compatriots in Austria celebrate tomorrow the placing of storytelling on the list of

intangible cultural heritages...



In her own words:

But beyond this fact there are also national lists and commissions of the UNESCO. And the Austrian storyteller Helmut Wittmann (Thanks!) got

involved in putting storytelling ("Märchenerzählen") on the Austrian

UNESCO list. This took already place in April, and tomorrow there is… Continue

Ad Infinitum's Odyssey - Another sort of review/ musings

I've got one word for Ad Infinitum's Odyssey - Wowsers!

I was literally blown away by the sheer energy, precision and spledour of their particularly physical style of performance storytelling. A far cry from the round-the-fireside storytelling we all love, this show brings an insight into why the storyteller may have once been confused with a magician.

There was no bow and arrow, but I saw it and I heard it and I could have sworn it was there. Lecoq trained performer George…

I'm Hans Christian Anderson - a sort of review/ musings

Rachel Rose Reid's I'm Hans Christian Anderson was described on the poster as "magical" and "a must see" I have to say I completely agree!
