The Inaugural Summer Storytelling Workshop

The day of Storytelling workshops was full of conversation.

We talked about stories,

we told stories,

 we got to know new people 

and to reconnect with some old friends.
We listened...

and we were listened to.
We were inspired by Mary Hamilton.
She said: "Tell a story you love."
She said: "Learn the story, not the words."

And that "inaugural" bit in the title of this post?  Yes, we want to explore having a regular Summer Storytelling Workshop.  Stay tuned for more...
