Landmarks and Milestones along the way

It can be very difficult to get somewhere when you are not sure where you are going.

As storytellers, as creative artists, we are always learning and growing- for as long as we live. We are *always* on the journey. In the truest sense, there is never a moment that we can be said to have "Arrived". And yet, as we travel this path, it helps to have something definite and concrete to aim for. I can say that I aspire to become a Master Storyteller; but what does that mean, exactly? What… Continue

Greetings Mei-Lin,
I am not totally a story teller. I work at the Unitarian church in Sherborn. I offer the story for all ages during the service most Sundays. Nora Dooley gave a workshop I attended and has been at our church for services. I love stories and story telling though and am always happy to add new stories to my growing number I enjoy telling. Best to You!!
