Written By: Carol Reinsma “Catch me if you can,” says Storytalker.
It’d be wonderful, quite marvelous, and better than fireworks if Storytalker told you exactly who he is.
But he’s sly and clever, keeping everyone guessing over his methods of story-sending. Sometimes he’s bold, telling a story through the voice of a person you know or meet. Sometimes, he’s like a flash in the dark or a bump in the night. Sometimes he comes into your bedroom after the lights are out and whispers a story into the deepest part of your pink ear.
Storytalker travels the world and never rests. One after another, she pours out stories into hearts and minds, entertaining, comforting or transporting us to new places and ideas.
Before stories were written down they were told through pictures, carvings, and one person sharing with another. This carving is placed on the shape of Cameroon, a West African country.
Now stories are written and shared through books, magazines, and newspapers. We also find stories on the Internet. No matter how stories are communicated, Storytalker is there.
Storytalker also whispers stories about and for children who may struggle in life. She knows that stories are helpful. But that’s only one way she works. No matter how much you have or don’t have, there is a story hole inside of you, one that needs to be fed.
Treasure every story Storytalker tells you in your ear and heart. As treasures, polish them from time to time. That means you must shine them up so that they are told in the most wonderful and exciting ways. Then share them with others.
Storytalker hopes you will enjoy some of these stories and that you will write your own.
