Sublime moments of a storytelling festival

Image hosted by

The festival is now nothing more than fond memories...but oh, what fond memories they are! We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend; warm pleasant breezes, clear skies, that harvest moon rising over the tent both nights. Saturday morning brought our workshops. Attendance at these was still low, but from what we heard, well received. Jen Maggio and I had a blast with our workshop, in which we combined playing with string figures and puppets to ease into storytelling. Jen suggested that the puppets could be used for character development by tellers working on their stories, and we broke into groups to play with that concept, to much laughter.
