I had a wonderful weekend on a Storytelling course at the International School of Storytelling, looking at an old Sufi story called ‘Loves Garment’ a deep look at the masculine and feminine. A unique wonder tale, both familiar and somewhat strange also. In the evening I was able to tell two tales, The Hunchback and The Mute Swan and The Boy and The Snake, at a Ceilidh. One of the telling’s was to a large group the other was later and very intimate with just 5 of us left in a room, we turned off the lights and sat around an open fire which illuminated our faces, a soft glow in the darkness, as we went into the story. Both the stories were from Duncan Williamson.
