I tell stories, ancient Irish myths, Irish folklore, and my own contemporary tales. I tell to adults. Listening as I tell, you will travel with the story, stimulate your imagination, and take yourself away from the realities of everyday life. The stories will enchant you, touch you, awaken and connect emotions. When the tales finish, you will remember how the stories made you feel, you will remember the stories and you will remember a forgotten part of yourself.
Telling a story makes ‘active witnesses’* of us all.
The day weighs heavy on our minds and at night ‘to sleep perchance to dream’ is not always possible. The lulling of a bedtime story, your favorite story, or one of my stories, can help the mind rest and sleep return. A bedtime telling recorded for you.
*’Active Witnesses’ from a quote by poet and artist, Matthew Lennon
