the living art of storytelling in Massachusetts

Inspired by reading Jay O'Callahan's Crafting Personal Stories, I've just written and posted a new story on Tell Me Another: Curb Your Enthusiasm: A Bedtime Story .

Thanks, Mike. Yes, Bambi, Babar, and Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach are also fraught with the trauma of the loss of a parent, and parents should exercise caution (or perhaps a little censorship) if they are reading them to young children. I remember starting to read James & the Giant Peach to my son, but when James' mother was killed on the first page, he made me stop reading then and there! J

Good story-very written! I found the Narnia books when I was in Middle School, so I didn't have the same problem. But seeing the movies Dumbo and Oliver Twist, when I was about four, left me with some major abandonment issues that took me a long time to figure out.
