Storytelling – Sean O’Laoghaire (22 February 2021)
Some thoughts shared by you from Sean’s Storytelling webinar: Whispering, wavering, flowing threads of grass, walking through the breeze and falling on his knees, wearing a cloak of nature, to help insects and fauna nurture…very evocative and inspiring, so open to interpretation and reflection…Old man of the sea Manannon Mac air, talking to pollution and asking him to clean up and stop polluting the sea…trust the children’s imagination!.. inspirational… Thank you so much…Yes, we’ll take this crisis as an occasion to grow and change into Something better… Love the story about your parents not telling if the shop was open… what a wonderful way to look at the world… Nature is a wonderful storyteller when her voice is listened to…love the idea of transplanting things in nature and letting them grow again…Great to be encouraged to keep up with the changes at this time and that are coming, inspiring!
