A good year to you, my friend. I liked "A Bird Shall Carry the Voice". You probably noticed that I am just south of Baltimore outside of Annapolis. I haven't been very active in Professional Storyteller this year... always seem to be so busy. But I've realized that I need to take the time to reflect upon life and what's important. Stories are a great way to do that.
When I tell "scary Jewish stories" I don't need werewolves or Golems. With the inquistion, the holocaust, smashed windows in Cleveland, Refusniks struggling for simple rights and rats in the Jewish sections of NY at the turn of the century, I don't need much else. Truth is I tell several types of stories, personal, transformations, women's tales, scary tales, historical and "Jewish". But any tale I create and tell will be infused with my Yiddishkeit.
Greetings! I hope you find Professional Storyteller useful and informative. I sure do! Won't you consider participating in the "Applied Storytelling: the Power of Story" group? We would love to have you! Best wishes. STEVE
Welcome to a grand sort of 'home' for tellers of all stripes.
What a remarkable and impressive background is yours, and what a world of experience(s) you clearly have. You obviously have a great wealth of wisdom to share with a great many tellers on this site (and I'm betting that I'm one of them).
I peeked at your very impressive website, and plan to get back to it and do some digging around very soon.
I look forward to your sharing with the PS Family -
