December Story: La Befana

Here is my story post for December. This story was recorded at the Montreal Yule Fair on December 7th, 2008. It features myself as the teller and Shayne Gryn on guitar. We had about a dozen listeners in a small room next to the Vendors room.

La Befana: A Yuletide Tale (7 minutes)

I first read La Befana in a collection of fables called Sun Stories by Carolyn McVickar Edwards. The word Befana means epiphany in Italian, which describes a coming together of seemingly disconnected ideas. La Befana is also a mythological character in Italian culture.

Enjoy and I wish you all a happy and safe Yule and a merry Christmas.

Much enjoyed the story, Hobbes! I am hoping we'll make it to your telling at the museum this month. It's been a very long time since we've seen you!

Here's a little early Yule gift, not so much for this blog in particular but just to say it's great to see you doing so much & obviously following many of your dreams.
