Old Wisdoms for Modern Times

Entering into the blog sphere. It is a strange place for the Back Roads Teller to be. Strange country to explore, and I gotta tell you, I have some trepidations at the moment. But hoping to get more comfortable as time goes on, and the terrain gets more familiar.

So, this new blog spot is a place to connect, share and explore. I am a performance artist in the style of a traditional storyteller. I love the small towns, the end of the road places, and open vistas. I share stories new as last week, and old as the hills I hike. I see stories as a way of sharing our human heart; knowing that we are not so different one from another. Across time and place what has moved us, troubled or inspired us has stayed much the same.

So I hope to explore ways that the old wisdoms can guide us in these challenging times. Ways for us to be comforted, strengthened, challenged and connected.

Come be a travelling companion along with me. There's a world to explore.....

Hi Rebecca ... Congrats on starting up this site. I look forward to tuning in. Just back from Patagonia having shared some amazing experiences with a group of people, I am contemplating stories, experiences and connections. I know that for the group, we were at the same place at the same time, but the stories we will tell about those experiences will be very different ... I'd love to be a fly on the wall! Cheers -- i.
