The Tree Pixie’s House

The Tree Pixie’s House

June 17, 2021
You may know I love walking my dog, Moe, and that I also like to take my camera on walks! It is not unusual that something will pop out at me, a set of tree roots, a flower, some sort of formation in a rock, and a story begins to seed itself in my head. I have been using some of these seeds for part of Story Story Podcast when I co-host, but I am also putting them into a 'proper' story format, and recording them. This one is called the "Tree Pixie's House." During the winter (which seemed a week ago), when I was taking Moe over one of the frozen lakes here, we found a small abandoned house in the woods, and then the other day I saw this wonderful hole in the trunk of a tree. Not big enough to climb in, but big enough to start a story!
I hope you like it!

Once, Upon A Handkerchief

Once, Upon A Handkerchief

February 14, 2021

As I change the format of this podcast, I will be sharing original stories, and classic tales and rhymes. This will be a children's show for all ages.

Once Upon A Handkerchief is a story which grew from the title sentence all by itself like a flower. Imagine a handkerchief with an embroidered butterfly, sitting covered in dust in an antique shop. Almost lost, almost hidden, it's waiting for someone to come along and find it.

The story was written for Elizabeth Peterson, a friend of mine. Another version, told in the first person, appeared on Story Story Podcast 17th February, 2021 episode.
