Video: Telling ‘Mysteries of Travel’

We tried to make sense of what we had seen. We compared notes. We realized that we would probably never find out anything more about what had happened, and why and how.

In case you missed any of the live shows (or you’re dying to see it again!), here’s the video of my story, “Mysteries of Travel,” from the Monday Night Marsh event at The Marsh in San Francisco on April 29th. Storytelling in the oral tradition. No notes, no text.

Closed captions available. Just click on CC near the bottom of the player.

“Mysteries of Travel” consists of two parts, titled “Eiffel: What Goes Up” and “Chartres: Ecstasy at the Altar.”

The written versions of these two stories won Silver and Bronze Certificates at the First Annual Solas Awards for Travel Writing in 2007. “Ecstasy” was originally published in the San Francisco Chronicle and also appears in humor anthology What Color is Your Jockstrap? edited by Jennifer L. Leo, published by Travelers’ Tales

Thanks to Dex Craig for the video.
