The storytelling community here in Ottawa is becoming very excited about an upcoming event. A storytelling performance of Homer's odyssey. 8 hours of storytelling. 17 storytellers taking about half an hour each. Not reading! Storytelling. I've been trying to learn my book and it hasn't been easy. Somehow, the language isn't flowing for me. We suspected yesterday at rehearsal it is because the images from that time aren't clear in my head. What were the palaces like? The clothing? The feel the smell of the place? Somehow I have to get myself more into that world so that I can tell my part of the story with real flow and conviction. Very interesting process. Any helpful descriptions would be welcome.
