Have you ever reminisced 
about a story
 you were told about 
        "the olden days"?

Where is that Storyteller now?

We’ve all enjoyed storytelling throughout our lives. We have been the speakers and often we have been the engaged listeners. Remember all the details, the sounds, the voices and remember how you felt?

Were you proud when you heard your uncle finish up his adventure story with “and that’s how I got that medal”? –and he is part of your heritage.

Did you touch the precious necklace you were wearing when your grandfather had that sparkle in his eye while saying, “Your grandma sure loved that necklace you’re wearing right now. Let me tell you why!”?–and you have the very same sparkle in your eyes

The truth is that there’s something magical in listening to someone else share anecdotes of their personal lives. Sharing memories leads to building a legacy, having others remember what you have to say and what you believe in. It can be truly intimate and beautiful, especially when accompanied by family photographs or diary entries. ✒️Those make it all more personal and real.⭐︎ Have you ever looked at an old photograph and wondered who the people were and even what they were doing? Imagine, if you could hear about it IN THEIR OWN VOICES!🎙

    a creaking old sofa is a great sound for opening an old door in the story
    tapping the palms of your hands on your leg in just the right rhythm can sound like hoofbeats
