Monday Storytelling Links

Since this is A Month Of… Maps: Create Your Own Map.

I thought I’d search out and link you to some collection of alternative maps.

Thanks to Kelli Honeysweet who will be returning May 5th to feature with us again!

Thanks so much Kelli Honeysweet! We look forward to seeing you again May 5th.

What an amazing turn out! So many new faces. So many stalwart friends.

I’m going to come out and say it, at about 7:45 I thought, “There is no way we are going to fill this place.” I was super duper wrong.

To all the people standing in the bleachers, thank you soooo much! I wish we could have put more seats down but the fire marshal came by Stage773 and was like, 148 seats and no more! You were troopers galore.

One of the things I love about Here’s the Story is how all of you hold up the tellers. How attentively you actively listen. Seasoned professionals. Friends. Strangers. They all get the same amount of respect and attention.
