From your newsletter editor
last few months have flown by so quickly. There have been storytelling
events, travel, and weddings. Yes, there are things that happen outside
the sphere of the tale. And yet, they are all fodder for new plot
lines, settings, characters, crises, and hopefully, happy endings. This
newsletter is sufficiently into 2015 that I am sure that we are no
longer writing 2014 on those cheques. That is, if you still use
cheques. So many gadgets and bits of software take care of the little
things, that we no longer have to remember changes, close doors behind
us, or even open them in front of us. Magic.
The next three months are filled with more activity by
the Ottawa Storytellers, including the Tea Party, its sister event at
the West End Well, and the Fourth Stage series at the National Arts
Centre (I wondered what will happen during its much touted
street level renovations, and Laurie Fyffe had the answer, see below).
This newsletter will be brief so as to give you more
time to store away your decorations, send thank-you cards, and finish
eating the leftovers.
