Inhospitable Goat People: A Scottsdale Ghost Story

We lived on property near the north west corner of Shea and Scottsdale, back when gray-green waves of virgin desert roiled towards Scottsdale Road, chasing it all the way to Cave Creek, a town fifteen miles further north.  Just two houses sat on the lot. Ours was long and flat, built of block and as inspired as a public restroom along the…

How the mosquitos were created - a sami fairy tale

This is perhaps more of a legend, than a fairy tale, and there are a couple of varieties of it. This is more or less a translated version of how I use to tell it. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the story.…

World's Largest Storybook

We perform our stories in front of a giant over-sized one-of-a-kind picture book. And although it may not be quite as huge as the one that set the stage for Verdi’ s opera “A Masked Ball” (below) it is right up there with the world record holders. See how our giant story…

Ugly Duckling Podcast

It’s been the subject of songs and films — Disney adapted it for the screen twice. In our version, as a further reminder of how uncool it is to tease other people, or talking ducks, for being different, we refer to him as the Somewhat Less Than Attractive Duckling.

This story has much in common with The Knee-High Man, which is part of our current production. It…

Drawing Inspiration from Art

Recently added a blog post that might help if you are looking for a new angle when putting together a story. It's called Promenading through the Artwork and it was inspired by a theatre production we saw in Hartford, Connecticut by Bated Breath. There are takeaways for…

Standards: 52 Bible Parables - Day 90

Standard Storyteller

To be a Christian Storyteller is to know that you have to keep your theme focused in one direction. In today's society that's called being niche focused. Saying you all are a Christian states that you believe in a certain moral standard that you will live your life by and that you would relate that standard in…

52 Bible parables -- Day 21: Too Much?

Too Much?

Well it's Friday and uploaded video day.  Today's story is titled: "Candy Bars".  And it has taken me most of the day in between routes to accomplish uploading just part of it and I'm still not done.  The next thing to do is to gather the data to promote.  And that's going to take some time.  Oh woe with me, what shall I do.

In order to have…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 20: Snow Day 5

Snow Day 5

Well the honeydews did come.  With this snow of course there needed to be shoveling and I had my task to do mainly discovering where my car was.  There was no snow plow that it come down our street until late in the evening.  So now I have to go back out in the morning and dig out a path into the street so that I can get to work.

And what time I…

52 Bible Parables -- Date 18: Snow Day 4

Snow Day 4

Boy did the stories fly about how slick the streets were.  It was unexpected, but acceptable, seeing as I had no choice.  The streets are so slick that nothing could travel on them so we ended up with a snow day.  It was a drizzle that froze on the streets.

It came in handy in the sense that I was able to finish this week's project.  That is this…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 17: Blessed Day

Blessed Day

Got up this morning as if I was going to work and proceeded to get some things done, some things around the house, and then finally some things on to the computer.

I was able to video the next parable story today, as well as another story called “Hunting Wolf” which was a short story that I remembered.  Then I was able to get on the computer and…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 16: Catching Up Again

Catching Up Again

I can not say the time has flown by, because actually it is gone by at its usual pace but I had so many other things to do in that time that it was difficult to sit down and make out my blog entry for the day.

I was able to make it home in between routes on Friday, but complications that prevented me from doing a lot.  Then Friday evening,…

52 Bible Parables -- Day 12: Snow Day 3

Snow Day = Opportunity.

I'm getting into this snow day routine, almost liking working at my computer all day long.  And having a camera to practice my Storytelling and see how I'm doing is quite helpful in developing technique.  Having the time to figure out what I need as far as stories, editing video and stories is actually kind of nice.

That's where the…

52 Bible Parables - DAY 11: Snow Day 2

Being Flexible

Can I tell you the Story of my day? I am a Storyteller you know.

I started the day sleeping in because I got to bed later than normal knowing today was a Snow Day. Although I did want to get as much done as I could before dawn. There was much to do if I got the chance:

1. I had to be sure that the fuel for my blimp was in order.

52 Bible Parables - Day 10: Snow Day

Best Laid Plans

Well today started out as a normal work day, but I got the word through Facebook that it was a Snow Day for the school district and being a School Bus Driver that means no work for today.  So I set about, since I was up early anyway, to figure out what I was going to do today.  And sure enough, the best laid plans have gone astray, because the wife…

52 Bible Parables - Day Nine: Resistance


When I was taking Sign Language Interpreters Training several years ago.  The first thing the instructor came in and said was 'Of all the things that an interpreter had to be, is to be flexible'.  On day nine that was true.

I had full intentions to video this week's story so that I could edit it and get a good start on getting it out with…
