I hope your Powell show was even a fraction as wonderfully received as it was here in Cody!
What a privilege…both your show, and to meet you. Thank you again!
I’m excited to try out making your boomerang next week, too…

Lighting Our Way-Interfaith Storytelling

Starting with the Colorado stars overhead in the dark planetarium, we traveled through the heavens to the night sky over Australia-lovely! Wondrous! Wyoming-Aussie storyteller...Paul Taylor...told Aboriginal stories of the Dreaming, showed photos of the land, the rocks, and the paintings on the rocks. His didgeridoo sang to us, weaving the stars and the Rainbow Serpent and the red land and the black spaces between the stars and the stories and the people and the Dreaming all together.
It was utterly foreign to me. And...one of the most profoundly spiritual experiences I've ever had. I couldn't enter that worldview, but in my listening and seeing the stories I could perceive, at least taste, a profound whole-ness to it... And while it was utterly foreign to me, I experienced a measure of peace and wonder within myself while being gifted with a peek at other's lives and spirits and was blessed by it.
"It is amazing how quickly we are drawn into the fascinating and diverse world of Australia through your engaging music and storytelling. Your talent is a gift for us all."

The Yubulyawan Dreaming Project is profound and reflects upon how important your work is. You have definitely made a significant contribution to our times - to the children and adults who need and want to be part of a world that values and understands our Mother Earth. I was moved to tears listening to the wisdom teachings of Bill Harney and moved into song and dance listening to Cooee.

What wonderful work you do for the children of Wyoming! My Lizzie (Queenie) from Desert View Elementary still loves your CD! We often Coo-EEEEEE in crowded places to call the kiddos back to mom and dad! Keep it up! Your time and influence is a treasure to SO many! Cheers!
Thank you Paul Taylor for another awesome week of music, dance, learning, community building, and so much more!
