Passing the time with stories

So, for a week I have been traveling...telling stories...at schools, at the Storytelling Arts Festival in Indianapolis. I love this job that I have...this role of storyteller that I have nitched out for myself.

On Saturday four of my school students came to perform as well. It was exciting for me to show them around and brag a bit. It was something like show and tell! I was able to emcee their show and watch them work in this surrounding of stage and theatre. They were thrilled. I do think a star or two was born.

I came home to a lovely baby shower for a friend given by Tonya. So, she made another trip up north to share her talents with her friends and family.

It has been good to share conversations on the old front porch watching the full moon rise and telling stories.

I guess that really is the role I play in all of my life...storyteller, and I am happy for this role.
