In the spring of 2018 I discovered a passion for storytelling that had been burning in a not-so-secret way beneath all my work for years. My poems, songs, and even the games I invented in childhood began to seem like water drops from a river that had always been flowing at the edge of my life. So I began telling stories in schools, libraries, church basements and theaters, diving more deeply into the mythologies that nourish us like water flowing in darkness.
     Then in the winter months of 2019 I created the Crane Bag podcast. This podcast is a way to get stories out into the world, using words and music to bring those stories alive in the here and now. I love doing this work and want to do more of it. The stories I love tend to be traditional stories, stories with a deep connection to wilderness, magic, and the unseen. In today's world we need these connections more than ever. Your support will help me to bring stories to others through the power of words and song!
