Bill and Kathy,
As you can see, I have not been on this Ning in awhile! I do hope that all is well in the New Zealand storytelling world, and with the two of you!
Harold and I are preparing for our every Friday and Saturday evening in October with the other two members of our troupe, Lisa Holmes and Eric Wolf for Spooky Stories in the barn ("When Night Owls Screech and Spiders Creep") before a Haunted Wagon Ride, at Youngs' Jersey Dairy. Jonatha
Hi. You are into many interesting things. Do you perform together always? Do you both tell together, called Tandem in the US, Duet storytelling in some other places? My husband and I tell in tandem and solo. I will check out your website. Ours is: www.jonathaandharold.com
You have no idea how much your words of encouragement and support have meant to me! Thank you so much for sharing and encouraging me through the challenging period of resting and healing after surgery. I appreciate you more than you know. :)
Back issue of LE RACONTEUR are available on the Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada website at sc-cc.com , so my first issue won't appear for a few months. At the same time, it is a really good newsletter, and has been for a long time...past editors have been amazing! Take a peek!
The most recent issue is available (for members of SC-CC only) on the 'Members' section of the website. I hope you realize that you can become SC-CC members....even if you live in NZ. Our conferences seem to be getting better and better all the time....
Great to have you onboard.... WikiEducator has very strong roots in Neew Zealand ....
Glad to hear that you're on Linux and Open Source....it's an evolution, but once you get there, it's a revolution....
We're working on a new 'node' on WikiEducator, kickstarted by a fellow from the Warrington School in NZ - it's a rural school outside of Dunedin, I believe....almost totally open source.... I'm sure there could be a storytelling component...
Thanks Bill & Kath, for the compliment on my photographer! She is so good I married her. She says she'd love to come to New Zealand to photograph you, plus she has a dear friend living there!
I do some Medieval shows too - for 12 year old students. The Ren faires in my region don't pay well.
Hi fellow Kiwis! It's lovely to 'meet, you both. Unfortunately, I won't be able to meet you in real-space yet, as I won't be going up to the Storytelling Festival this month. Have a great time! I would've loved to be there, too.
Hello Bill and Cath, wonderful to have storytellers from New Zealand. I really liked the look of your Medieval Minstrel Show on your website. I'm going to listen to your soundbites as soon as I have time. I visited New Zealand and just loved it!
Welcome to the neatest place on the internet for storytellers. I think you will learn to love this site as much as I do. Lots of good Groups and I see that you have found several... Check out the Marketing & Fishbowl groups too.
This week is JRR Tolkein week and so I fired up the DVD to watch the Lord of the Rings again. New Zealand is such a beautiful countryside. I hope to visit there someday in my storytelling travels.
Please upload some of your stories so that we can hear you tell and videos too. Check out my page and others... there are a lot of great tellers here at PS.
