Self-Promotion for Cafe Show

Tomorrow night, Saturday, February 9 from 9-10 p.m. I am scheduled to perform a new show I created for Valentine's Day, entitled, Love Feast: A Smorgasbord of Love Stories, Myths and Legends From Around the World. I am excited but also very nervous as the weather is not being helpful. I sure hope I get a lot of audience members, but it's so frustrating trying to get people to appreciate storytelling as an art form. For one hour, all they have is my voice and body to keep…

Ten Blunt Tips for Those Who Want to be Professional Storytellers.

10 Pieces of Quick, Blunt Advice for Those Who are Starting Out on the Road to New "Professional" Teller-dom.

1. "Professional" is about you and your ability to deliver above and beyond what your clients need. Professional is knowing what those needs are before your client knows they have them.

My adaptation of a Soren Kierkegaard story via Tony Campolo's book "You Can Make a Difference."


(c) 1985 - Tom A.B. Taylor

I read about a land of ducks who waddled their lives away

They'd duck-walk to their daily jobs'n'duck-walk while at play

They'd waddle to th' duckstore & th' Duck movie way down town

When th' traffic was bad, there'd be "Quack-Ups"...

As the ducks waddled all around

Come Sunday mornin'… Continue

I Had a Teacher . . .

© 1998 – Tom A.B. Taylor

I had a teacher when I was young, she was old and I…but a kid

I can’t recall her curriculum at all, but I’ll never forget what she did

She sat us all down on a rug on the floor, while she relaxed in’er old rockin’ chair

“Once upon a time,” she always began, then she’d lead us away from there

To forests, and castles and distant lands, and characters we’d clearly see

And we sat enraptured –…

Saturday, February 2, 2008 - 12:05 a.m.

"It ain't about how pretty you sing,

it's all about how good you tell the story."

From traditional ballad singer of Madison County, North Carolina, U.S.A., Dellie Norton ~

It's Amazin' to me . . .

Thursday, January 31, 2008

Years ago when I was touring my one-man show on Woody Guthrie, in the course of events - studying, researching, practicing, rehearsing, writing, editing, reading, traveling - it dawned on me that I ought to learn to play the spoons, AND bones, for the show - you know, to make it more authentic. Just seemed natural to me. An appropriate thing to do. No direct evidence that Guthrie did, but, still and all, none that he…
