"You have a rare and wonderful gift. Your gift made it possible for me to glimpse one hundred worlds and one thousand stories inside my own heart. I thank you for each of these worlds and each of these stories."


"Thank you so much for The Hour Stories. As I sit at my desk this morning full of ideas for stories, I felt I must thank you, because all of these ideas started out as difficult truths that might have been left there weighing me down in ways not helpful to growth and moving on. Instead they are being birthed as stories, and much to my surprise, some of the really tough stuff is being loved. Before you, I did not understand that this was possible. Thank you so much…"

"All those nights of writing opened doors for me, helped me to have the courage to develop who I am. I thank you for opening the spaces and the places that called to me. I'll be forever grateful."

A.K., writer, journalist, Vancouver, B.C.

"Dale, I look back on my first class at The Writing Tables and then through the following five years of writing The Hour Stories with you and I feel awe and such gratitude.  Awe at the stories from my childhood which emerged, lines scratched out, words misspelled, but on the paper in front of me, stories!  Without you and the affirming non-judgmental space you hold with your great listening heart, my tentative words and fumbling sentences would never have continued on to become beautiful stories. 

I thought my childhood was pretty ordinary and boring!  Now I know we all carry wonder filled stories within us.  Thank you Dale for helping me find the courage and faith to tell my stories and then also to value them.  I am deeply grateful to Dale and The Writing Tables for her writing  cards giving me the wondrous space for these stories to be written and voiced. Blessings to you and your ongoing work."
