Someone once said that February is the cruelest month. I myself have never been a fan of February. Not only because of the dreadful weather but because of the dreaded pressure of Valentine's Day. 


Last year when I heard the Moth Storytelling Slam in New York City was h...


My Aunt Ruby made Kentucky Jam Cake as long as I can remember for our Christmas day dinner. When she could no longer make it one of her daughters Jena took over the duty. Last year Jena and her family went to Florida to visit one of their daughters for Christmas and I...


I'm standing on the stage at the Music Hall of Williamsburg at the Moth Grand Slam storytelling competition telling my story. I have told this particular story many times. Then I hear myself start to adlib by referencing the story that just proceeded me. Whose voice is...
