Recently a few spammers contacted members, asking to be emailed back for something "of interest to you." They were quickly removed as soon as it was known. I asked new member, Tom Doty, if I could post this for him so you don't think he's spamming. I've known Tom for many years through the email list, Storytell. He's definitely a long time Professional Storyteller -- 33 years sharing native stories. Look at … Continue

I have spent the day finalising a podcast called The Deep Hearts Core. This comes from the last line of one of my favorite poems by W B Yeats called The Lake Isle of Innisfree. This is a place I go to for inspiration.
This takes the Irish myth about the beautiful people called the Tuatha de Danaan and uses the tale to tell how we in our own way have driven our own beauty underground. I would like to share this story with you. You can… Continue

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

I have been researching a number of stories concerning the legend of the Vanilla, as told by the Totonac people. I settled finally on a story that marries both botanical facts with magic and a wonderful love story. If you are interested in finding out about the problems in pollinating vanilla plants by the early Spanish conquistadores go to Digistory.
If, however, you want to read the full legend of the vanilla, go to… Continue

First of all, let me tip my preverbal hat to the word conundrum. I love that word. I can’t say it fast. It demands an extra moment and a little extra effort, which is fitting for any conundrum.
I’ve been walking around for weeks now, pondering this issue. Its time to put it out to the world at large. Am I more like a Hershey bar or a Godiva truffle? And …regardless of what I am, which would I rather be…A Hershey bar or a Godiva truffle?
This might seem simple, but it is… Continue
