89: Scott Park — Still He Rides

Some pretty big news isn't reason for Scott Park to put away the bike yet. Scott told this story at the June 2018 Story Night when the theme was "flight." It's worth noting that Scott is still biking, evidenced by the photos on his Facebook profile this week.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

The only reason this story seemed relevant for the podcast was because it was timely and reflected another challenge we're undertaking. We're moving. This move was 90 percent necessary. As much as we're moving into a new home, we're moving into a new situation that represents growth for us. So, I've been working steadily in any spare moment I had in the last few weeks making this house in Silverdale emptier and the one in our new place fuller. As of this post we're a few days away from spending the first night in our new place. A new chapter, to borrow a cliche.

Thanks for indulging me. The story was off the cuff, clearly unplanned and probably touched on something few people cared about. I hope you could at least relate. Surely, there's a beard in your life.

The song for this episode is You're My Home by Billy Joel.

Thank you for listening. We look forward to hearing your story.

16: Margaret Loveless — Might as Well Jump

Sometimes an event we'd rather not experience encourages us to do something that can be an inspiring touchstone the rest of our lives. Margaret Loveless had one of those experiences and told us about it on April 7, 2016. She was judged the top storyteller that night, when the theme was "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time."

Margaret turned that theme around, but we should let her explain how.
