A Word from the President

October brought the first freeze here in KC.I brought my plants in and turned on the heat. At first the cold penetrates my bones and then my mind. It takes me a while to get used to it. It is a good thing we had a few storytelling events to warm our minds and hearts. In November there was the KC Storytelling Celebration and the National Storytelling Network, Tellabration!!! Thanksgiving brought lots of family stories too. Some cultures wait until the first snow to begin telling their stories.

As for me and my clan we tell our tales all year round. However for those who wait for the first snow, it came on November 11 this year. I am looking forward to the holidays in December and more stories with friends and family. January brings the Chicken Festival for River and Prairie Storyweavers. During that festival, MO-TELL will hold its annual meeting. We want to hear from our members so I hope you show up. You can tell some stories with RAPS and come to the meeting and let us know what you want out of MO-TELL. See you then and Happy Holidays.
