  • “The Seven Lies”
  • “Chartres: Ecstasy at the Altar”

My solo storytelling show last Friday was amazing, a real peak experience! What a fun evening! I had a terrific time and feel wonderful about having challenged myself like that. I did eight stories, about 75-80 minutes of material in all.

The place was packed. About 48 people in a medium-smallish room. I guess gratuitous self-promotion pays off, eh? Every single chair was in use. I was so pleased with the turnout and the enthusiasm of the audience, even if most of them were friends! They laughed a lot, usually at appropriate moments, and applauded each story. What fun!

Thanks to my dear wife Susan, who provided sumptuous snacks and recorded the whole show on video. I’ll have it online in the next few days. Thanks also to Daniel Zarchy, Jennifer Chinlund, and Judy Brown for coming early to help set up, then staying to clean up, and to Danny, Ben Tucker, and Peter J. Logan for the photos.
