Storytelling Road Trip: New Cumberland, West Virginia

It has been an amazing week. From storytelling to travel to a quiet cabin on the banks of a river, it has been a week of contrasts, of beauty and fun, conversations, laughter and a few tears.

On our way to New Cumberland, WV on Wednesday we spotted someone strange on the side of the road, so of course I had to introduce myself.

Metal sculptures of a particularly fine and weird kind! We stopped after the show to take these photos and discovered they were created by a man named Ken, whose daughter I had just met--she was a volunteer at the library. She was happy to let us get up close with these great pieces of her father's imagination.

Isn't he awesome?

A little creepy, I admit, but what an amazing work of art!

Larry kinda liked this hairy guy:

There were lots of others:

A peek inside the robot to see who's running the show:

Fun stuff! And the kind of thing I love to find along the storytelling trail.
