LYN FORD, STORYTELLER - TELLER OF HOME-FRIED TALES

I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence.
Thomas Hood, Quoted at: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/

The attitude at this time of year has got to be "gratitude"!  No matter how tough things may be or may have been the last few weeks (and, believe me, there have been a few tough weeks and months, in many ways, for the whole family), the sun is shining, the earth is spinning, my heart is beating, my stories are still enjoyed, and I know I'm loved.  Giving thanks is the least I can do!  How about you?

Travelin' to Tell!

NOVEMBER  12!  STORYTELLERS OF CENTRAL OHIO WILL HOLD THEIR ANNUAL TELLABRATION AT THE OHIO HISTORICAL CENTER AUDITORIUM, I-71 & 17TH AVE, COLUMBUS OH 43211.  DOORS OPEN AT 7 PM, FOR A PROGRAM FOR FOLKS WHO CAN COMPREHEND MORE MATURE STORIES AND APPRECIATE THEM FOR 90 MINUTES.  TICKET DONATION:  $5.  FOR MORE INFO, CALL FRANK AT 614-268-0532 OR THE SOCO WEBSITE:  www.socotales.org  This is a worldwide storytelling event, trademarked by the National Storytelling Network.

    I'm NOT traveling much. Schools and private events beckon, but so does a big Thanksgiving meal, cooked mostly by this granny-woman, who loves switchin' in the kitchen.  Folks who really don't know me sometimes say, "Oh, you spend too much time in the kitchen!  When do you get to sit down with your family?"  Well, while I'm cooking, folks are in the kitchen with me.  Some of them are cooking, too. We cook together, we eat together, we laugh together, we talk together, we eat some more, we laugh some more, we talk,...you get the idea.  But my folks spend time in the kitchen.  Ours is a tiny cooking space with a big, warm heart.  The kitchen and the dining table are where most loving families tend to congregate before and after a good family meal. And this granny loves it.  And pie.  Love pie.  And leftover turkey sandwiches, with cranberry sauce...Are ya hungry yet?
