If one but tell a thing well, it moves on with undying voice,
and over the fruitful earth and across the sea goes the bright 
gleam of noble deeds ever unquenchable.
-- Pindar

School children frequently send thank you notes after a visit.
Here is a sampling of comments received from Belmont Ridge Middle School in Leesburg VA

"The way you tell stories makes a perfect image in my head like a movie."
"The way you incorporated a story with rhymes, it sounded like music the way you said it."
"It’s amazing that you can tell stories for years and still seem so excited about it."
"I thought I was there along side the characters."
"You grabbed my attention and made me feel like I was in your stories."
 "During your stories I took a moment to close my eyes.  All of a sudden my brain 
                went  crazy. "           
"All of the words you were telling suddenly became pictures.."         
"I must say that I went home and told all my friends and family! Now I would like to be a storyteller. "
"When you began to speak the whole room went silent because your voice is commanding yet soft."
"Your stories were funny, but some had a deeper meaning.."
"It made me laugh and a few made me think."
"The rhymes made it almost poetic."
"I could see Gus with his big floppy ears and Furman catching the cricket."
"The stories you told were ones I found amusing .You kind of had to think about 
                them  for a minute"            
 "I believe your message, that everyone is different.  I pulled a lot away from the                                              presentation."

"One thing I found amazing was that I have never heard any of your stories before and I’ve had my                           share of listening."
"You opened my imagination up and extracted it.."
