Quotes On Storytelling:

“A people are as healthy and confident as the stories they tell themselves. Sick storytellers can make nations sick. Without stories we would go mad. Life would lose it’s moorings or orientation… Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart larger.”
Ben Okri

Senior Prom in Sarasota

A Night To Remember It is 1944 in Sarasota, Florida and Sarasota High School is buzzing with plans for the Senior Prom. As a senior I am excited at the prospect and have a date planned with my steady boyfriend. I have my dress and we love to dance so it promises to be a wonderful evening. There is one tradition that the more daring students enjoy on the night of the prom. They try to stay out all night until sun-up, driving around, going to the “Smack”, a local drive-in...


Remembering the Good Ole Days

Well over 80 years of life was a great deal for youngsters. Sure there were cars, but they were not that many around and they certainly did not interfere with children’s play time. In the winter, we walked half a block to a very short street (only one block long.) It was a hill that had no houses on it, only a large garage. It was perfect for sledding in the winter. We would slide down Templeton Street and onto Woodlawn Terrace. Woodlawn was strictly residential with a...

What a lucky day for us, the weather was lovely. We could hear the cymbals clanging and the drums beating, and proceeded towards the parade route. What a perfect time...


Women's Rights

One Woman's Story In the ‘50s, well before the advent of “women’s lib”, it was the accepted idea that married women should be content in their role of wife and mother and that the husband’s career came first, with, of course, many exceptions. Now, largely because of the economy both partners may have god jobs and if there is a major move or transfer, both decide what would be the most advantageous path to take. In the ‘70s, when things were changing slowly and women were...


Hooray For The Red, White and Blue!

We are all American citizens but many of us were born in other countries, and all of us can trace our roots to other countries. Maybe our parents or our grandparents were born across the sea or maybe our family has been here for many generations, making up the melting pot that is America. The diversity of people and cultures, bringing their knowledge and expertise have made our country the great place that it is. Of course if you are a full blooded American Indian your...


Friend Friend

I'm a 6th grade English teacher. I like doing things for my students that show them that I really care about them. Over the years, there are gestures I've made for student gifts as they rushed out the doors for winter break. My intention has always been to give a free or low-cost, yet meaningful gift. The biggest challenge is always the same, no matter the gift: quantity. Besides sealing each envelope with a sticker, tucking a carefully cut phrase from a portion of...
