The beauty of healing

Many years ago, I was a storyteller for a library, and I felt beauty was an absolute necessity in my life. In addition to telling stories, I went to schools to talk about books. I also performed one Saturday each month, telling stories through singing, dancing, and doing ventriloquism with Sophocles, my puppet.

Being in the public eye as a performer, I felt it was important to look beautiful and perform gracefully. But I prayed through each step by looking away from my body as the source of perfect beauty, timing, and presentation, and by focusing on God. I feel this helped the audience see the flow and grace of the piece, and feel they were a part of it.
