I think the last blog post I wrote was about receiving the Heritage Award at the Aquarium of the Pacific. That was 2017. Wow! 2018 was a whirlwind of storytelling activity. I toured Louisiana, all over California and ended the year by touring in Beijing, China. I also started a partnership with Los Angeles County Library and helped develop a program for the Obama initiative, “My Brother’s Keeper.”

Not sure why, but I’m always uncomfortable using the pronoun “i” too many times and the last paragraph has a whole lot of “i’s” in it.

I’m hoping to be able to blog a bit more and keep all you more informed about the happenings on this storytelling journey.

In 2019 I started a series of vlogs (video blogs) titled BABA TALKS. These are just short videos of me talking off-the-cuff about some of the everyday occurrences in the life of a professional storyteller. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes a bit sad but always truthful. I’ve attached a link below to episode #09 of BABA TALKS if you’re interested in checking them out. They are all posted on my youtube channel. If you visit, subscribe to the channel while you’re there.

I’ve had an explosion of requests to travel internationally this year and I plan on talking more about those invitations once they’ve all been solidified.

Overall, I’m excited about the potential 2019 is offering. Did I mention that this will be my 25th year as a professional storyteller? I’m sure I didn’t. Yes, 25 years on this journey. Time truly flies, but more like a concord than a sparrow.

I’m gonna close this out and hopefully post a few more before another year passes us by. Thank you for taking the time to read and, as always… “dooni dooni kononi bé nyaga da!”
