as do we all, Helen, as do we all . . .

if we would just listen as often as we are moved to talk, now THAT would REALLY be something !

Hope to listen to you tell one day soon.

Nice to meet you too! I would love to start incorporating more rhythm and song into my tellings. There is probably not a way to view my page without logging in. Sorry! I do recommend joining though. Facebook is great fun! There are a few storytellers on there too :)

Hi Helen. This site is a little odd in that you can't leave chronological comments. I replied to your comment, but am not sure if you were alerted.

I dropped the daily pages, but I'm working so hard on this humorous Ukrainian cookbook, I get all the writing I need. My first paragraph is always garbage, then the writing starts to flow. It's time to quit for the day when my recipes get cranky instead of funny. The great thing about Julia Cameron is she teaches you garbage and cranky are okay. The vein of gold is waiting underneath.

Talk to ya later, gecko woman :-D

Or perhaps my website broke because it is quirky-proofed? In either case the website is up if you care to peruse it. My ebooks are free right now.
Loved your Video, especially the Hebrew dialect.
Take care!

I programmed my website so whenever a pretty lady tried to access it, the thing broke. So - it is now broken. I am trying to fix it right now (read - on hold for technical support here)
Hopefully tomorrow you can try again? Hope so.

I know there is so much Talent! I am so inspired every time I come to this sight and see the amazing things that people are coming up with. Storytelling takes all shapes and forms. Voices!
I love using the puppets but I also like doing straight telling as well.

I really adore your Video! Short and Sweet and really shows how much fun you would be to see live.
I hope I can someday.

Helen - I just heard a talk on viral videos - seriously consider posting your video on YouTube - it's good

My, my comparisons to Eckhart Tolle, "why thank you! " she said blushing.

Love love love your video clip!

I'm laughing. Thanks I needed that today... the 'after show crash' you know...

I just watched your video. You are so great! I am a bit quirky myself. I think you will inspire me to get "out there" even more than I have as of yet. Thanks! I really hope we can chat.
take care,

Sounds great. Just let me know!
Enjoy Passover!

Hello! We had two great Seders. The first was a chaotic one at my house with me leading, children playing, an assortment of interested and uninterested family members, and my husband's delicious salmon! As far as phone bartering, my storytelling friends and I pick a time (say 90 minutes) and split it 50/50, sometimes starting with a 5 minute check-in for each of us. We let the other person use their time as she sees fit and we ask for appreciations or other kinds of coaching if we want to do so. It's really fun and it's so great to have a supportive listener! If we can find the time, I would love to listen to your Golda story. If you want to wait until after mid-May when you are not as busy, let me know.
Take care,

Helen - Thanks for asking how I came up with the idea for my show dark matter... well, I like to study science, and philosophical and metaphysical subjects. The idea of dark matter came to me last summer after my last remaining 'grown-up' died. I was thinking I might create a program similar to that wonderful story that Charlie Chin does about a funeral. Are you familiar with it? It is brilliant if you ever get a chance to see/hear it. I was thinking that I would weave in stories abut my family and myself within the framework of the funeral. But that all changed as the story actually emerged. Turned out to be a series of stories connected with the science of dark matter. I hope to have an opportunity to perform it again soon. - Lynne

Helen - glad to connect - we play percussion instruments too - mostly marimba and conga - do you always use drumming while telling? - we use percussion intermittently, depending on the audience and the story - your one-woman show sounds great - I'm in the midst of my first one-woman show, dark matter - Lynne

Hi! I'm so sorry I haven't written back. When I talked about bartering, I meant over the phone. I barter time with storyteller/friends in California, Minnesota and Massachusetts. How is the Golda Meir story going? I hope to hear it from you one day!
Take care and have a happy Pesach!

Thanks for the comment. I'm in the middle of finals, but hope to talk more soon.

Dear Helen:

Will you be adding any audio or video to this site of your style of storytelling?

I searched your website in case you had any snippets.

What you do reminds me of another group--Resonance Story Theatre. One of the people involved--Wendy Gourley--is on this site. They use rhythm and drums to build interactive programs, too. I recommend you say "hi" to Wendy.

Welcome to the site.

Until we tell again,

Rachel Hedman

the balafon is similar to a xylophone but made of wood and bamboo. the kora is a 21 string, large harp made of wood, skin and gourd.

Dear Helen,
Thank you for writing! Your story is fascinating. Mazel Tov to your father on his 82nd birthday! I'm so glad you have found wonderful connections to Judaism on your own terms. I would love to barter time with you to hear your storytelling work and to share mine with you. If you are interested, let me know. I hope you and Sondra have a joyful new agey Seder. It sounds fun!
Your Golda Meir story sounds great! I want to hear it! I told a story about "Golda" several years ago (but this was in the third person) and I have not told it since. She is such a fascinating character.
Be well,
