Dark Clouds of November...

I drove down to Indy yesterday for elementary storytelling shows...always my favorite. Finishing up the shows, I drove to Ellen's for the week end as Kathryn Windham arrived last night to share her stories this week end also. Kathryn is an icon in the storytelling world from Selma, Alabama. My children all met her when they were in their young teens. She promptly fell in love with them and bought them moon pies. I think that is their favorite memory of her. We had dinner with friends, and it was good to share stories over meatloaf and a light red wine.

Today I shared my love of stories with teachers at a luncheon and off again tonight to another dinner party. I know it will be more of the same...howling November winds, spitting snow...and stories...always stories.

Happy Birthday to my Dad yesterday! He was going out with "the boys" when I talked with him!

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories.
