I am a former professor who used stories to hold my students’ attention. Since my final degree was in biblical studies I tell stories that bring to life narratives from the Old Testament. I also relate myths that follow the same themes of biblical narratives and may influence those found in the Bible. Furthermore, I tell fairy tales in order to show their application to everyday life. Finally, I’m fascinated by mondos that Zen monks use to focus awareness and to move toward enlightenment.
