Day Five - The Long Trip Home






Day five was one big blur. The days are so long at the Festival there really isn’t time to doo much else. I had planned on doing some homework and posting to my blog, but it never happened. When I returned home I was tired and didn’t feel quite right. Needless to say, by the end of the week I had a sorry case of the flu with a 100+ temperature. I called to cancel my Friday acupuncture appointment only to find that acupuncture is used to treat colds and flu.

It's a week later, I've finally caught up on my posts and I can sit up straight for longer than 15 minutes at a time!

Attending the National Storytelling Festival is an amazing experience. I think we are very fortunate to be able to bring some of the best storytellers in the world to Multnomah County. As we work with storytelling more and more we realize how much it intertwines every aspect of our lives, from catching up with a realtive to developing a new video game. It just makes me want to go out and tell a story!




And you never know when you'll make new friends!
I can't go without saying how helpful the Portland Storytellers' Guild has been over the past several years as volunteers for Tapestry and as a storytelling resource.
Good bye! Until my next storytelling adventure!

Hey Girl!

Nice to hear from you! I am so glad that you had a great time at the festival. I still have not returned home...been on the road since the 28th of Sept.

Thanks for the kind words, and thanks for buying my CD. Now, I can eat next week!

Hugs, love and stories
Kim
