Storyteller


Have you been to The Gypsy Bonfire yet? Lisa Hoffman has a storytelling section to her blog where, in her words "I ask my authors to tell a story that you could share over a quick cup. Picture yourself sitting around a Bonfire with VERY close friends. It’s chilly, you’re cozy -maybe wrapped in a soft blanket, hands clutching a mug of steaming hot Mexican Cocoa, the creative energy is hovering just overhead. You could not be more relaxed and everyone’s sharing a story."

I feel lucky that Lisa asked me to share a story at The Bonfire and you can read it here beginning today. So gather round, warm your hands near the fire, and get ready to hear a true tale of synchronicity.

No better way to bring the Bonfire back than a tale from One Skillful Storyteller.
Like the Best stories, I wanted to say: "well?....go on...."
perhaps you'll return someday.

Raising my cup to you!
Thanks again Seth...

Your story kept my interest throughout. What a kindness you did and so nice that it worked out. You were a detective taking all the right steps to find the owner and you did. Bravo! I am impressed.

Ah, Seth, this is a wonderful way to start a new week! Thanks for the story. I visited Sedona and the Grand Canyon in 1997 and only weeks after that made a 'sailing' in a hot air balloon over Holland, is not that kind of synchronisity too? Thanks Seth and Lisa,

You are an excellent story teller! I was holding my breath hoping for a happy ending... That was really nice of you to take time out of your vacation to try to find the film's owner.

Karen Cole said...

You certainly get around, Seth.

Good story. Sedona and the whole of Arizona is a great subject for stories and photos.

that story is really about you, the attention to detail, finding the film, the heart in you wanting to give, to reconnect everything... its wonderful!

I loved Sedona and that part of Arizona, its truly breath taking at the canyon too--so much happened to me there. Thanks for sharing this.

HI Seth - Thought I'd share the comment I left over at Gypsy Bonfire...."Hey Lisa - Great Bonfire story. Just the kind that I could see myself listening to over a cup of coffee with Seth. A very kind moment on his part must have made a great difference to the photographer. I think those kind moments have ripple effects and his reaching out to her led to other kindnesses he and we will never know about. Renews my faith in humanity. Thanks for such a great story!"
xo frannie - Thanks Seth, it was a good one.
