Tales for Today and Tomorrow.....
Cathy S. Mosley, of Springfield, Illinois, brings over twenty-six years storytelling experience to her performances. Her stories can enhance any event, whether for the young or the mature, with a weave of mystery and humor.
Well before she ever began storytelling she had a passion for folklore from around the world, particularly Irish, Scottish, and Welsh lore. Her passion has played a great role in her development as a teller. It later led to her performances at the St. Andrew Society’s Highland Games.
Her love of nature has also led to her a many year involvement with Lincoln Memorial Garden’s Indian Summer Festival. And to her work with Nature In Legend and Story(NILAS ), which is an organization focused on an interdisciplinary approach to nature education.
“Stories have always been a part of the weave of human history, and those who were the greatest teachers and leaders were also some of the best storytellers. Long before science proved that the brain grows through the use of the imagination, that tool most needed for problem solving, our ancestors recognized that storytelling would deeply influence their audience. They knew that stories were how we shaped our histories, and often our lives. And stories are no less powerful in today’s world as they were in our ancestors.’ I firmly believe that stories are for all ages.”
