In The Throes of Thursday--Storytelling
I love to hear stories told out loud and I love to be read stories, don't you? While I was in Northern California driving through the wee towns and across the open high dessert, I stopped at places that were perfect for storytelling. Here's one.
Gerlach is home to Burning Man--one of most challenging outward bound events anyone has ever created. Want to know more about this? Here's the BEST DESCRIPTION I've read. It makes me want to clean up my bike and go for the ride across that 107 degree dessert.
There has to be a scene in my next story about a water tower.
Here's downtown Gerlach. I wanted to buy the carved moose that was in the front yard, but the car said no. Guess I'll have to create a story about that moose and how much it called to me that day.
Do you have places that turn you into a storyteller or make you yearn for the stories they have tucked inside them? I have one more of these places to share and I'll do it next week on Monday Miscellany. Hope to see you there because it's an interesting story and there's something really special about it.
