The 40th Toronto Storytelling Festival March 2019 Observations
What I noticed on Sunday, March 24, as I listened to stories at The Toronto Reference Library, was the gift of “seeing” so much of the stories!
The Storytellers were painting with words! I think it was Laura Simms who said, “The law of the storyteller is to see with their inner eye everything of which they speak!”
Here’s what I saw on Sunday:
I saw a bask of hungry baby crocodiles, swimming up the river.
I saw blueberries spilling from a basket, tipped over by a gate.
I saw an enormous brown bear, standing tall, arms outstretched, at the edge of a meadow.
I saw a King pull an arrow from his quiver and pull it taut upon his bow.
I saw the devil’s black coat and hat and gloves.
I saw a broad winged dove, sweep down to the riverbank, with a sleeping baby on his back.
I saw a unicorn!
What did you see?
