I am a writer of stories, but the art of telling the story, that is an art all on its own. Last night I gave myself a gift, I took myself off to a magical place, for an hour plus, I was transported to another world, and another time. The voice of the talented story teller from his virtual platform, took the audience to Lapland where a boy named Nikolas was orphaned, and how the villagers came together to look after the young boy. Last night was part 1 of Christmas Story (Joulutarina)
On the Seanchai libraries website, they explain… Seanchai (“Storyteller” in Irish) Library celebrates the Celtic tradition of stories told around the hearth or in the pub to friends, family, and welcomed strangers. Seanchai Libraries bring stories of all kinds to life, in Virtual Worlds: Second Life, InWorldz, & Kitely on the Open Metaverse. www.seanchailibrary.com
The story teller last night was Shandon Loring.
Do you have a picture in mind, of what Santa looks like, did you wonder which of the folk stories are “true” How did all this Santa Claus “stuff” all come about…. ?
Story telling is an “art” .. my time spent listening to Shandon last night, has me wanting to know more about the story he began telling us last night.
