light and shadow and story

The world is telling stories.

Tomorrow is spring equinox, and
tomorrow is Shabbat, and
tomorrow is World Storytelling Day.

Those are three good reasons to tell a story tomorrow.

After all, why not?

Storytelling has always been intrinsic to The Paradoxes of Mr. Pond.  That fastidious civil servant solved the most alarming cases and produced the most remarkable paradoxes through the medium of Story.

Here at the blog writ in his honour, we explore and celebrate all things Story. So it’s with a high degree of excitement that we read the official explanation of the celebration:

On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night.

This year’s theme is light and shadowanother theme important in fantasy literature of all sorts, and here at Paradoxes in particular.

If you want to join in, whether or not you can get to an actual storytelling event, you might want to toddle down to The Hog’s Head.  Where, as pub regular Red Rocker explains, they’ll be celebrating story all day over virtual butterbeers, digital firewhiskeys, and very real stories.

Please—come along and Tell Us a Story.

  1. I’ll be there Mr. Pond! I can’t wait to read your stories – as I LOVE your stories here so much. It will be fun. And how neat that you found the storytelling logo and posted it above. I like it!
