Yesterday's Neighborhood Evolution storytelling show was a smash. Claudia Chopek and Debby Schwartz put together a terrific group of musician storytellers to mesh with the prose storytellers. Claudia, Debby & I thank all the artists, Eddie Skuller, Mike Fornatale, Abbi Crutchfield, Lianne Smith, Adam Wade, Edward Rogers, Don Piper, Ward White, Philip Dray, Amanda Thorpe, Naturi Thomas, and Jonathon Calvert. Thank you, Claudia and Debby for asking me to do this with you. It was an honor.
Thank you, Todd and Maxwell's for having us. The seasonal storm drove some unexpected guests into our show including a squirrel and a pigeon having a silent quarrel, a snowman surrounding a tree, penguins, salmon, seals, gulls, and Gus, the depressed polar bear from Central Park Zoo.
