    Forever Young: Beth Weissman

    Forever Young: Beth Weissman

    I will forever miss my mother, Elaine Beth Levine. May softness embolden me. When I’m with beloved family and friends, I feel so fortunate.

    As a native Northeasterner, I have equally come to appreciate the arts, culture, nature, and flavors unique to the Pacific Northwest.

    Why is it that I forget how lucky I am sometimes?

Amazing storytelling podcast

I always enjoy the personal stories that come out of Portland Story Theater. I am fortunate enough to live in Portland and have attended several live storytelling shows. These are the exact live recordings of those shows. I can listen to these stories while exercising, working, driving; pretty much at anytime. Love Portland Story Theater!
