Hi, Tom and Sandy - i wanted to "invite you" as "friends" but i can't seem to figure out how to do it. Long time, no see! i haven't been to FGC in many years, but i think of you two often.

Hello Sandy &Tom! Nice to meet you. Thanks for reading my blog.
The verb "chiner" in French, means "going hunt antiques". In this case the journalist plays with words, the name of the city is Chiny. Juillet 17 is not a special day, it's only the date of the festival in 2007.
It's one of the oldest storytelling festival in Europe, a beautiful international party of words in Belgium!
Tom and Sandy - "Hi" from some of your friends "down under". I have fond memories of the lovely meal we shared with the two of you and our Auckland storytelling friends, and the stories we shared after.
Sandy and Tom, how fun and nice to see you on this web source, I find this Ning quite friendly and inspiring - thanks, being my friend here and in our Bay Area committee of storytellers. Check out the Storytelling website I listed on my page, finally got the Gala and the story you told in the mix of 'comic life'.
Storytelling on Sunday 5-6 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on KSVY 91.3 FM http://www.ksvy.org/home.htm the last story on the playlist is our tandem telling of “Yumi’s Courage” [13 minutes] written by Wayfarer Tomm.
Thanks for the invite, Tom and Sandy! I believe I saw that you two are leading another storytelling related workshop at Annual Gathering this year (or is my feeble mind making it all up?) I remember fondly attending the performances of your workshop members in Amherst. We won't be there this go-round, but Bill and I are joining the planning committee for Annual Gathering 2009, which will be at Blacksburg, Va., (Virginia Tech) again. You're such a gift to all of us!
"Dry Clean Only" . . . that's hysterical! WHO came up with that?
Welcome, Tom and Sandy!
You'll love this place, even tho' there are some here who are "soakin' wet," if y'follow my drift. I'm one of'em, and started the biblical telling group Steve mentioned earlier - and, he's right: we'd love to have you join us!
Sorry I didn't greet you earlier, but I've been out of pocket and off-line since noon Thursday (TX Storytelling Festival).
You've got lots of friends on this site, and you'll meet lots of new friends, too. Take a while to check out all the bells and whistles on the place - contact any of us for help, or go to the FAQ Group, who may've already answered your question.
We are so delighted you're here, you two have so much to teach and share with us - as Buck said, please post some audiofiles so we can hear a bit of what you do.
Long day, early work tomorrow, so I'm signing off - but, before I do that, I want to say again how glad we are to have you with us, how I look forward to your sharing with us, that I wish you the very best and, again, send a warm Welcome to the both of you!
Greetings and welcome to this great site! I hope you enjoy it!
What a fascinating profile you have! I look forward to leaning more about the two of you and what you do.
I see you've already joined the Tandem group, but there are a couple of others you might consider as well: the Biblical Storytelling group, and the group Applied Storytelling: the Power of Stories. I would love to see you active in both and learn from your insights and experiences!
Welcome to Professional Storyteller. Glad you made it to the site. I hope you have fun exploring around and making new friends. I see that you have already joined the tandem telling group. Awesome! You might also want to check out Story Biz and Marketing for the business side of your telling. Best wishes!

Welcome to the coolest website for storytellers on the planet. You will just love this site... that's my bet anyway. Poke around and look at some of the excellent relevant groups, like the Two to Tandem Group, there are groups for stories for kids... getting published.. marketing your storytelling, and one that I am fond of... In the Fishbowl.. check it out. Post you audio files to your pages so we can hear you tell. Make sure you introduce yourself to the StoryMasters from Florida and my dear friends Harold and Jonatha Wright.
There are some fun videos and lots and lots of pictures. This is a place to grow you storytelling skills and your business. Say thanks to Dianne de Las Casas who created the site just for us.
If you have any questions... just ask.. I am not an administrator.. but I am just like most of the folks here.. pretty helpful. If I don't know the answer... I can make something up. :)
You have told stories--tandem and solo--since the year I was born. How wonderful!
Perhaps you could help me in one of my storytelling projects. I am related to Daniel Boone through his mother, Sarah Morgan. She was a Quaker woman and I always pictured putting a one-hour program dressed as her and sharing stories--not just about Daniel Boone's childhood--but also of the 10 other kids she had.
I want to respect her Quaker background as best I can--any suggestions?
