Once I began the journey back to storytelling my heart and soul were fluttering with excitement. Over the last four decades I've learned and forgotten many many folktales, short stories, poems, and humorous dialogue with my puppets. Now I could truly concentrate on a few stories that would be ideal for children in grades K-2, 3-4, and 5-6. Somewhere in the timeline after my parents died in 1989 my stories began to develop a more personal approach, my mind would simply, on its on, float back to a childhood memory and a story just flowed from my inner self. I smiled and learned to let the stories come as they chose.
