Today, I sat quietly thinking about your bike journey. The chain whirring, tires singing on the pavement, the breath of fresh air in your face and the sun at your back. Meadowlark, mown hay, traffic and the quiet of your heart as you pedal. Running used to be the very thing that kept me sane and now I must run in my mind, I hope you have a safe journey and that you are more full of stories when you trip is finished than when you began.

My pleasure, I enjoy readin about your journey, the picture with the poem by Hafiz, is of May blossom local to me - (Hawthorn) - here is a little link to what Hawthorn is all about here in the UK..

Hi Layne,

Nice to meet you at the SfS Gathering at Rydal. Hope things are going well for you back home. Good luck with your cycle tour!

Thank you Layne. I Figured some practice, love and a few bicycle adventures I should start to get the hang of something sooner or later :-D

Layne: It's interesting that just about the only items I use on the stage or during my telling performances is my Grandpa's Story Box. It's full of tales. Quite often I invite a listener to choose one of the stories; it could have a fox fur, a mining helmet, a carbide lantern, a deer antler, you name it, and then I tell it. The beauty of the "Storybox" is that it is bottomless. I've never been able to overfill it with all the stories I tell.

Layne, I'm sorry we are not on your route. I've checked out your website and am interested in what you do. My site will be up soon and I was wondering about having my stories on the site or just mention them on the site. I also would love to do some podcasting. Have you had much experience with that?

Hey, Layne -

Thanks for making time to check out "Storyteller," and special thanks for the generous 'cowboy poet' nod - I'll take it!

Carry On!

Thanks for the friend invite, Layne. I have never been to the SFS. I'm a Highland, backward, grumbling, insular curmugeon, so I avoid other storytellers generally and festivals in particular. If I hung around with storytellers, I might have to learn something.

I have a few audio excerpts on the website,, and would be honoured if you were to listen to them. I like the Maclean one best.

Yes, I was at the Western Arts Alliance Conference. It was here in Albuquerque. Did we meet? Hey, wait a minute...are you the PREACHER??!! My goodness. This networking group is like one big FAMILY REUNION! I am soooooooooooooo looking forward to catching up with you.

Peace and Blessings,

Hi, good to hear from you and I am delighted to hear that you had as good a time as I did at gathering 2008. I will certainly be there in 2009 (I am Chair - I have to be there). Contact Taffy if you wish to make a contribution to 2009. Its his (and Chrissy's) show. Plans I have heard of to date are already exciting me. As to the kings, I am not sure how all this king stuff came about but I have enough king repertoire to have planned the programme for last July and then, when events on the night itself were not quite as I had expected, to omit some of the planned stories and substitute others without ever departing from the king theme. ----king great!

Hi Layne! Good to connect. I've enjoyed reading your posts. And, yes, we have followed parallel academic paths! Hope we cross paths in the real world one day soon.

a new web site, a dissertation, a coast to coast bike tour, AND enough Ning commentary to have made yourself invaluable....Where do you find the time and energy?

You rock, and I look forward to hearing more about your coast to coast tour (I just read your journal at crazyguyonabike).

Hi Layne,

I am not quite sure yet if I will be going to the SfF Gathering next year. I will definitely be going to UK sometime as myself and Cassandra Wye and I are cooking up some joint performances and workshops. But dates are not yet set yet.

I may be more likely to go to the Scottish Gathering in Glendale in the Isle of Skye run by my friend George Macpherson. It will be towrds the end of May. It is a much more low key affair with a few workshops and lots of walks and storytelling. I went two years running in 2005 and 2006 and have benn wanting to go again ever since.

Aside from school I am studying literature, and preparing to travel once i graduate in December. Im still learning how to play the guitar, but it is coming along slowly because I am determined to teach myself. I took up the study of literature because I want to begin to write music.

Your stories, along with the idea of storytelling has inspired me to tackle this new challenge, and i thank you for that. I look forward to this upcoming semester because I am enrolled in one of your classes again.

Hi Layne,

I've just joined up on this site and it's nice to see you here.

I must tell you that after our hilarious food stories at the SfS conference, that I was in Hong Kong for another conference and had the opportunity to eat frogs spawn in coconut milk once again! But this time I chickened out!

"Electric emceeing skills"? I like that! thanks so much. I would actually rather tell stories, but in my postition with the Timp Festival, it's a little awkward to put myself on the program, so I don't get to tell there much--although I miss it more than I can say. I get around other places though--you just can't keep a dedicated teller silent, can you?! Good to hear from you!
