A few months ago I attended a Year 12 parent teacher interview for my son, Sam. I quite enjoy these outings as it gives me a chance to engage with my beautiful, introverted and semi verbal 17 year old.
The first interview was with his maths teacher…

It was the late 1980’s and I was suffering with spinal problems that had affected my walking. I had lost strength in my body and particularly my legs. It was painful to stand, walk or sit. One day, I was led to some sacred teachings on healing…Continue

The more I think about storytelling and explore ways of learning and understanding it, the more amazed I am at how deeply embedded story is in this life, and conversely, how deeply we are embedded in story; it really is the water we swim in.

Wow, oh blimey. This has been quite an eventful day for me. I have been out on the road performing a particular set of childrens stories for pre-school children for a couple of years, and today I had to send the information to an important client.
This was a bit of a step, as I have travelled a log way with Lottie and Mr. Columbine, the magical old Moth Shepherd and his young friend who lives in the house at the top of his garden. I really love doing these stories, and I tend to…Continue

King John did not like to be foiled in anything he did, and he found himself in a very tricky situation. Sitting on a hastily erected throne on the edges of the forest he sat there, eyeing the trees suspiciously as if daring them to move without his permission. He had a shocking bad temper and could be frighteningly cruel and scary when he lost it. Twice he had thrown his crown into the moat and made the guards go swimming in there looking for it. That takes a long time when you have to…Continue

Have you ever had a story in your head and just couldn't concentrate on anything else until you wrote it? Well that happened to me today.
I was at a networking event this morning in a local pub, a conversation with the landlord led to him telling me about an event they were holding on the weekend. Rather strangely it is a scarecrow festival, without discussing anything else I just couldn't get scarecrows out of my head.
When I got home shortly afterwards despite having other…Continue
It was about four years ago that I became particularly grumpy over the use of the word "storytelling" by those who do not actually tell stories. Writers and singers and actors had always described themselves as storytellers, but suddenly in business articles and on Twitter and in the blogosphere suddenly everyone from advertisers to life coaches to film editors to game designers were calling what they did storytelling.
And I'll admit it's an imprecise word.
But I decided to do…Continue
MAMA RUE: A CELEBRATORY AND EMPOWERMENT EXPERIENCE book is available at Amazon. It is written in stoetry (a format of poetry and narrative) and has 18 color pictures illustrated by myself. It celebrates those babysitters, especially of yesterday that would not let the children in their care be 'just mediocre.' Mama Rue was a real live babysitter in my community (her name changed) who was happy to be part of the village that helped raise the chid. A CD will be available soon that…Continue

India, an IT giant and the world's second-fastest growing major economy, has millions of Rajus: all under 14 years of age, some as young as 4 or 5, and all toiling hard just to get a square meal to keep body and soul from parting company. Child labor is a dagger through India's soul. The country has the dubious distinction of being home to the largest child labor force in the world, with an estimated 30 percent of the world's working kids living…Continue
