A.". : ., di : ---'---=," Storyteller At Hogansville Elementary Donald Davis, international sto- ryteUer, mesmerized Hogansville El- ementary students with his humor- ous folk tales on February 3rd and 4th. Davis was born in a Southern Appalachian mountain world rich in stories. "I didn't learn stories, I just absorbed them," he says as he re- counts tales and more tales learned from a family of traditional storytell- ers who have lived on the same West- ern North Carolina land since 1781. Davis grew up hearing gentle fairy tales, simple and silly Jack tales, scary mountain lore, ancient Welsh and Scottish folktales, and - most impor- tantly - nourishing true-to-life stories of his own neighbors and kin. Davis remembers, "I discovered that in a story' I could safely dream any dream, hope any hope, go any- where I pleased anytime I pleased, fight any foe, win or lose, live or die. My stories created a safe experimen- tal learning place." For Donald Davis, storytelling is a way of giving and living life. He invites each listener 1o come along, to pull deep inside for one's own stories, to personally share and co-create the common experiences thal celebrate the creative spirit. For Donald Davis storytelling "is not what ! do for a living.., it is how I do all that I do while I am living." DEAN LARSON, NANCY LARSON, AND TED SHEPPARD, area dulcimer players, shared their talents with Hogansville Elementary students.
