a couple of you were nice enough to ask about story telling. it is the world's oldest art form. practice around many an ancient fire, there are story telling groups around the world. Here in the US you can find one by checking with The National storytelling network. You are likely to be surprised by how many there are. There are many venues to hear story telling. libraries, schools, senior groups, and theaters, there are a number of festivals. some quite large. This art form is enjoyed by people of all ages, come listen some time. you'll have a good time.

The second wednesday of each month is one of my favorite nights. It's the story swap nights. Tellers gather to tell each other and anyone else who comes by stories. Some nights I go with a tale I really want to try out. others I'll have 3 or 4 in mind. Tonight i had nothing. Still its my job to set things up for the evening, we had some really good tales.
When my turn came a story came to me. About a place called 'Down Home'. I hope each of you have or had such a place. A rather comfortable place where the family gather for holidays and such. Mine was burned down in the late 60's . Yet it still exists in my heart.
I liked telling the story and it will become part of my regular rotation,

I spend an hour so reding your blog. Some were of great succeess, other about life struggle, others about day to day life. Each of you shared some really special things. Each in its own wat nudged me forward, I wanted to post this after reading them. BUT i was nudged out the door to church. Thanks to all of you I am finding new ways to move on.

I woke up feeling pretty good today, That's good because I've got a lot to get done, Today it feels like I could do some of them at last, Getting in some spark time first, That is at least some I can do every day, whether I ache or not. High on my list today os groceries, A chore I usually don't look forward to, But one I vow to enjoy today, I hope you also have a good day,
