Making Connections

 

 What I love most about storytelling is the connection.

For me it's not about puppets or props, staging or the teller. It's about the listener and what is happening inside the listener. It is person to person. It's about the connection. That connection is not magic. It's real.

 

It is about touching the hearts and imaginations of listeners. It is opening them to adventures, feelings and possibilities. In  a story, we can walk through fear and chase the villain. We can experience sorrow and joy and do it in the safe harbor of a story. A story can change thoughts and ideas.  A story can touch your heart, make you laugh or make you cry, it can comfort or challenge. A story can help you see yourself and your world in a new way. That's powerful. How can you not be fascinated by story?
