People, Stories and Storytelling are my passions. One of my favourite practices is to listen to children tell stories. As a listener you may find yourself wanting to lead and take over the story. If you wish to truly come to know the impact storytelling has – hold your tongue, sit back and become the best listener possible. Be present! Be conscious! Remember the story you just listened to. When I am moved by a story I cement it into my memory by telling the storyteller I shall always remember their story. I give the storyteller a name – remind me to tell you the story of the Recycle Depot Man .
