Im a collector of stories as a Jackdaw collects shiny things- they are almost exclusively personal events or thoughts which occurred to me. There seems to be no end to tales, and no end to my fascination with them. Storytelling has been called the oldest art form- might be so. I mean, if you werent hunting or gathering or daubing pictures on your cave walls, what else was there to do? So you sat in a smoky huddle, hoping the fire would keep predators at bay, and you listened to stories which might be sad, hilarious, thought provoking, but most of all, they create a cohesion, a concordance between teller and listener. If, indeed, the oldest of the art forms, it is also the most enduring. Read on... John Lucky Garvin, MD, is a retired an Emergency Physician who practiced for over forty years. He has enjoyed a life-time love affair with storytelling. He lives in Roanoke, Va. with his beloved wife, Sabrina. At this recording, he has five children and four grandchildren, and many animals and birds, if you count the pets and wildlife about him. He enjoys wood-turning, is deeply involved in wildlife rehabilitation, and, oh yes, writing.
