Vann, vand, vatten

Temat för World Storytelling Day 2011 är vatten. Bidra gärna med dina egna vattenhistorier i en kommentar! Tack vara Baden Storytellers’ Guild har vi en uppsjö av historier och ideer att börja med här nedan. Ser du något du vill använda eller utveckla?

The Baden Storytellers’ Guild in Ontario, Canada spent 1/2 day planning the 2011 WSD event and brainstorming story ideas. I’ve attached our brainstorm list. Some of it may make sense only to Guild members, or local Ontario people, but I think there’s enough to tweak people’s imaginations. It’s a brainstorm list, not a list of particular favourites.
