The concept is you bring in an object, then tell the story behind it. My BFF, Kimberly Matibag gave me a Dolly Parton doll years ago, which became my lead into telling my Dolly story. The doll is in the photo here. The photo is by my loco friend and amazing photographer, Daniel Talonia.
Then on a whim, I hopped on the train and went to the Moth storytelling Slam at the Bell House in Brooklyn.http://themoth.org/The theme was "Boiling Point" and I told a story of someone cutting in front of me in line at the Moth and won! It was a great night of storytelling and making new friends.
