Holiday Tales

Storytellers never take a holiday.  If our mouths are busy eating or singing or brushing our teeth, we are watching and listening and gathering the threads for a newly woven story.  The Winter holidays are absolutely the best time to pull together stories.  So much is going on!  We learn so much about our cultures and our families and ourselves in the way we handle all the hustle and bustle of this time of year.

Keep your ears open for the happy things that children say.  Keep your eyes open for acts of kindness.  Keep your heart open to receive the gifts of the sights and sounds around you.  Take a walk while the snow is falling.  Suspend your disbelief.

Give gifts of memories, of your own talents, of stories.  These things are so easy to wrap and to share and they can be given over and over again.

Happy holidays to one and all.
