Hey Norah! I hope you enjoyed cincinnati while you were here! it has a really great arts scene! I'm excited for my move to boston and to go to massmouth for the first time! I'm really lookin fwd to hearing you & the rest of the storytellers!
Hi Norah -- thanks for connecting with me here on your site. Yes, it was good meeting you during First Night, too. I'm sorry I couldn't stick around longer to chat with you after the stories ended. I'm not really a storyteller myself... just one who enjoys hearing them and engaging in a littler banter around them ;-) If you ever want to spend a Friday evening in Hopkinton when I'm hosting a ZENMothra, you're always welcome as my guest!
Norah, I am greatly flattered! :) But the only thing I share with the Booker Prize winner is my last name. She has a tendency to generate polarized opinion these days and is quite famous/infamous (depending on your opinion) in India. Here's something I wrote about an essay she wrote: WARNING: It's very loooooooong. Firstly her essay of 8 pages (if you haven't read it already) and then mine... http://virtual-inksanity.blogspot.com/2010/05/walking-off-plank-with-comrades.html.
Hey, Norah--Yup, I knew this was your baby, and I've been meaning to come to a Story Slam forever. I'm a big fan of The Moth, and stories in general. (And I actually moved to Cambridge, so Bella Luna is now a good excuse for a bike ride, instead of right around the corner). Jen
Hey, Nora. VT got too chilly for me so I moved to Brooklyn. Trying to get my bearings. Slowly making progress, meeting people and getting settled. I have to make this work; I'm running out of states. Hope to cross paths with you one of these days. Thanks for reaching...
Nora, I am not really a storyteller, but I was intrigued by your invitation in light of my recent injury in Paris and subsequent need to BLOG about it... I NEVER thought I would blog about anything. If you're at all interested, my blog is frenchplum.com. Loads of stories there... but can I tell them live? I tend to freeze without a script! Happy, though, to be part of Mass Mouth!
Hi Norah--it took me a while, but today I realized that I'd only visited the site, but never signed up. Hope you enjoyed the lovely weekend. BTW, I screwed up my courage and wrote to Jay O'Callahan. Will let you know if he replies. x J
