I obviously haven't been a good girl and checked this site very often! Sorry about the delay in my response!

Drumming...oh yes, drumming...a voyage of notes, heartbeats and another world of shamans and smiles from different walks of folk. I have storytold with the drums, around a bonfire in the fall with the crispness of the night touching everytime I stepped from the warmth of the fire. It is a very special feeling to match words, heartbeat and story.

Hi Patti,
When I was in fifth grade, I was given a violin to play which would not stay tuned. I struggled with it for two years, then gave up. Maybe if I had a drum...
Nice site,
Marjorie

Patti, I really enjoyed your story about wanting to become a drummer.

My tale: on my own I was able to borrow the one and only flute in my high school. I was a less than keen clarinet student at the time. That flute was a terrible instrument, but enough to plant a seed that would grow and last many years.

This year I re-learned the doumbek (Middle Eastern drum) and played it in a stage version of a novel by an Iranian author. That spurred an interest in playing bongo drums, of all things, which I have taken up with great enthusiasm.

Perhaps, someday our tales will cross, and we can thump a drum or or two together.

Howdy Patti,

I look foreward to seeing you again soon, too. Is James all better? I know he's been out of the hospital awhile.

Great page! I love the content, arrangement, and colors. So your Dad is still active doing chaplain work; that's fantastic. I just finished a six week biblical storytelling class with 15 students. It was energizing and I enjoyed listening to their stories and learning from them as well. -- Frank

Hi Patti, I don't know where we met. Can you refresh my memory? I'm embarrassed to ask, but am racking my brain as to how we know each other. Your Page looks like someone I'd like to know very much. Mimi Rockwell

Hi Patti,
Thank you for inviting me as your friend.
What wonderful photos! They convey your energy and love of storytelling. Your creativity shines through. As a newcomer to the site, I am still "wandering around" and taking a look .... it's a great meeting place to renew energy and find out what everyone is doing.
Talk to you again soon! All my best, Brigitte

Hi Patti

Thanks for the Hi!

Hi Patti, Thank you for the invite. I see that you are doing some things I like to do, but don't get much opportunity these days. For instance, my master's thesis was a script of Renaissance stories and I directed a storytelling troupe to tell them at Scarborough Faire in Texas! About three years ago I got together with another storyteller and we did a tandem as gypsies at a one weekend Ren Faire in Rogersville, TN. It was fun.

I'm impressed at your Fullbright! I'm going to apply for one, myself.
Sincerely,
Delanna

Hi Patti,
Thanks for the welcome. For a while I'll be getting myself familiar with this site and what it has to offer me. I'm very excited to have found such a great group of people to chat with about stories. I have a son getting married next week so I'm BUSY right now but after that I will post a story or two just to see what you think. Again, so great to meet you. eija

Thanks Patti for inviting me to your friends list. It';s good to see a widening circle taking place for a newcomer to the Professional Storytelles but not a newcomer to storytelling. I'm an old codger,.
