I am/ was/ have been a storyteller, of the stand in front of an audience and tell a story type. I wrote my own stories and was involved in setting up a storytelling group based in Leiden, Holland 12 years ago. It is still going! But then I moved away to the north of Holland, had a second child, had to work 12+ hours a day (lots of driving) and had no time or energy to keep it up. Until recently that is. Now I have time and am re-discovering my interests. Some, like marquetry, have no attraction for me any more. But writing short(!) stories still lights me up.
