"The thing about a story is that you dream it as you tell it, hoping that others might then dream along with you, and in this way memory and imagination and language combine to make spirits in your head."— Tim O'Brien

Spinning Adult Yarns

The Romany are usually camped all over Lemuria. Wherever you are you will find the Gypsy Camp not far away. Make sure to take some time to wander down to the camp and let your hair down. Join in some old fashioned story telling and sing and dance.

Power of Storytelling

 

Y is for Yarns

Yarn: any spun thread esp of the kinds prepared for weaving, knitting. Story, travellers tale, anecdote, rambling discourse.

We all tell stories in our day to day life. Some of us tell our stories in a matter of fact sort of way and are not concerned about how our listener responds to our story.

Growing up, we were told stories, by our parents, grandparents, favorite Uncle or Aunt. That's how we learned about our rich family history and ethnic heritage. Whether around the dinner table or the kitchen table, the fireplace, front stoop or back porch.

Our parents and babysitters used stories to put us to sleep at night. Whether they read tales from books, told family stories passed down through generations, or made up stories to suit our fancy, stories instilled values, pride and an understanding of how the world worked. Stories helped us envision what was possible, and cautionary tales told us what not to do!

Storytelling bridges differences and helps to nurture the community. It nurtures the imagination and helps to heal the wounded
