NEWS of the Day
Storytelling in the time of Covid19 Quarantine
Storytelling NEWS: I am preparing to do a monthly storytelling on Zoom for family and friends and strangers (that just are friends I haven't had the opportunity to meet). If you'd like to be included drop me a line through contact and I'll include you. There may be info for leaving tips but none is required, just very appreciated. I really want the stories to be available to all without charge and having optional tipping hopefully makes that work.This will be happening beginning in November 2021. My storytelling show info, show title, date and time of each months show will be posted on my Home page and Events page, usually a month ahead, at least through Sept. 2022.
Our female Nigerian Dwarf Goats both have given birth! We have two young goats, one male and one female, and they are a hoot! Is this storytelling news? Umm, sort of, stories are being born out of the experience. What a boost I get every time I hold one of these little kids and gaze into the eyes of a sweet Nigerian Dwarf goat! Talk about a creature that shares the abundant joy of creation, its a goat. There may be other animals that walk along and then suddenly, for no apparent reason other than joy, they jump into the air, turn a full circle, land, prance about a bit, and then keep walking like nothing had happened. Oh the joy!
Our Nigerian Pygmy goats may be pregnant!
I know this is not Storytelling news, strictly speaking, however it is of great import to my wife and myself. We are fairly new to goat keeping and we already love these little creatures that are so full of life.
Step Into Storytelling Parts 1 and 2
Last Saturday, Oct. 10th, 2020, Barb Fankhauser and I presented the first on-line workshop
for the Portland Storytellers Guild. I'm one of the founding members and Barb was one of the earliest to join. How cool is it that after 35 years of Guild activities and growth that we were given the honor of presenting the first virtual workshop.
We had a great time and we are hearing back from people that attended that they are finding advantages to on-line learning - easier to concentrate during group activities (Break-Out rooms) and they could be in the comfort of their own homes with the beverage of their choice.
We are looking forward to our next workshop which will be on Saturday, January 23rd beginning at 10am. You can visit the Portland Storytellers Guild website for tickets (not avail just yet, but soon). www.portlandstorytellers.org
Our next workshop will dive deep into where to find stories you want to tell and it will also have more information on how to find your way of telling.
Hope to see you there. Write me if you need more info.
