Sparklers Are Giant Matches – Cara’s Childhood Tale for StoryMasters

Jul 30, 2022 | Community, Funny Quips, Live Storytelling, Spirit of Adventure

I’ve been excited to appear in many in-person storytelling shows that have returned to the stage, but I’m also grateful for the virtual shows still online. They create opportunities for storytellers and audiences to share stories when they can’t get out, make friends in far-flung communities, and stretch our creativity. Below is a video of a fun tale from my less-than-model childhood, which I shared recently at a Zoom meeting of StoryMasters, a Southern California offshoot of Toastmasters. Whether you’ve never told a story for an audience or are an old hand, I recommend checking out this delightful, supportive club.
