This has been a busy storytelling week compared to the rest of this winter. I was in the center of the state on Tuesday, telling stories to students at an elementary school. Tomorrow I will be at another school, this one just one county away, and Saturday evening I'll be telling stories in Athens, Ohio.
It feels good to get back into my storytelling groove. I have two new stories from West Virginia's history that have been going very well, and I have pulled out some that have not been on my list for a while. Stories seem to gain a freshness when they are left to rest for a while; perhaps time to rest brings more richness and brighter images and the stories seem to have a new energy.
I worked on calls today, lining up summer programs, following up on other storytelling projects and tying up loose ends. It's been a productive day, lots of multitasking and mess but in the end a lot got done.
Now I am off to bed to be fresh for an early start tomorrow. I'll leave you with some pics of this evening's beautiful sunset, a sign, I hope, of a good day to come.
