To me, there is something magical about storytelling. When I listen to stories told, I feel a sense of delight, like a child, sitting in wide-eyed wonder. What will happen next? When I tell stories, I feel a special connection with the audience. I love ALL storytelling. To me, the different types of stories, the different methods used by storytellers with or without props, the different voices, are all wondrous and enjoyable and appreciated as showing the diversity that exists among people and yet connects us. I like to tell to all ages: to children adults, seniors. I like to use some music, whether singing or playing the harp. I also like to use puppets.
