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.."
