“I recently dreamed that I awoke in a beautiful casa surrounded by trees dripping with oranges, grapefruit, avocado and figs that were mine for the picking. I shopped in one of a kind boutiques full of lovely, unique creations from all over the globe. I was wined and dined on exotic foods with strange and delicious names. I dreamed I spun yarns, both true and make believe, to a multitude of lovely smiling faces that laughed delightfully and wiped tears with dignity. Then I opened my eyes to find that it wasn't a dream at all. I was there! In the beautiful California hills at the Ojai Storytelling Festival. What a dream, what a magical dream!”

— Suzi Whaples, storyteller
