Good afternoon, unlike the snow swollowed Nature Center you see above, it is a bright shiny day here in Skokie. The promise of Spring is, but, a breath away. This blog will be about storytelling. I hope to provide examples of storytelling I find interesting and thoughtful. I will be including - folktales, ethnic stories from around the world, personal stories and examples of stories I find to be thoughtful and revealing. To illustrate my views, I will present various forms of media. I hope you enjoy my musings.
I'm going to start with a short story I wrote in rhyme, while studying in England in 1995. I noticed, I couldn't walk very far, without bumping into the deep storytelling traditions of the English people. This story is inspired by those beliefs.
