The Rich Man and the Shoemaker

The Rich Man and the Shoemaker is a fable first penned by LaFontaine and rearranged and recorded here by Marlene Wurfel. This episode features a very special performance by Captain Thunderpants, the Vancouver Island Comox Valley's Performer of the Year in 2020. 

This story is hundreds of years old. Is it still relevant today? Should the Shoemaker have done something differently? Would you have?

Daiya the Balsam Poplar Dryad

A dryad is a tree spirit or nymph that lives in a tree. This Tales from the Lilypad original story by Marlene Wurfel is about a Black Poplar dryad named Daiya. This story is loosely inspired by Greek mythology and greatly inspired by my love for Balsam Poplars. Yeah, it gets a bit sappy.
