Art Outside

What a terrific life
yesterday was my first experience
doing a tiny tot storytime
hour long set
outside
main stage
at an established art fair
it was the first time they decided to try inviting a story teller

We ALL called it a terrific success
and we have been invited back
next year

It isn't such a huge stretch from concert performing (musical) artist
to story teller
(Maggid)

I admit to surprising a lot of people
but, you would not blink an eye
knowing I do it all differently
wilder
crazier
and
we all sing & dance together
AND
the young people claim the event
so
everything changes in a heart beat
to include their ideas.

yesterday i learned a cave looks like a rainbow
is dark inside 
and friendly bats live there
also, some children sleep very quietly

I learned the third little pig bought the vacant lot 
across the street from his mother's house
and, after earning his doctorate
built a three story brick home
with a circular staircase
bedrooms on the second floor
ballroom and playroom on the third floor
kitchen in the basement
with everything you could want for your favorite sandwiches
the alarm system was so sophisticated
that no one
not even the baddest 
huffy puffy wolf
could break in

perhaps my favorite moment
is when we rode fast things
especially a time machine
that took us to the future
where there is Peace
We brought that Peace home
with us
to share on a sunny 
storytime day
in Maplewood, MO

an awesome art fair for everyone
Art Outside

love & gratitude

What fun! I would have enjoyed listening to it all. There is a wonderfully fun book you should read, Maggid, called The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig. Enjoy!
