As the snow continues to melt, the arrival of spring is just around the corner! With the receding snow, the landscape begins to awaken, heralding the return of light and warmth. I don’t know about you, I am ready for some more daylight! Sooner than we think, the Arrowleaf Balsamroot will be opening up and the valley will be awash in the scent of lilacs. As we shake off the winter doldrums, I look forward to sharing with you another incredible evening of live storytelling.

I’ve been working with the storytellers on their stories, and I’m so excited to bring you this round of stories! 8 storytellers. 10 minutes each, all sharing stories on the theme “Close to the Edge”. More on that, including tickets and childcare, in this edition of the Tell Us Something newsletter.
