I am in Spain for a few days, BUT
when you heart
is in something, as mine is, I don't just have a vacation here, but also think about the 15, 000 Stories group that I created months ago - just like having a family and being concerned that everyone is happy and ok when one is away.
So...............here is a picture I took at a festivity yesterday - the men give a rose
to their loved one, the women give a book
to the men. And being a story group here, now that I… Continue

The idea of the story group was to share our personal stories.
THIS in order to know each other better.
Whoever has been following us, I think has been impressed with the diversity - of people on earth, their similarities and their differences.
If you like the idea, if you believe in the idea as we writers of the group do, then consider contributing.
Simple as that.
I am going away for a few days to Spain,… Continue

First time I will be away from the group ever since it started months ago. First time I won't dedicate minimum an hour to writing, organizing the page, commenting, helping with foreigner's writings, adding photos, corresponding.
I ask myself "while "mommy" is away (I am sort of the mom of the group, having created it) will the children play?
I'll be back in 5 days but in the meantime....will the stories continue....?
the answer… Continue

If you have loved reading Tree Thunderchild's stories on 15,000 Stories, please read what he has to say on the page now, entitled MysterTree.
It is part story, but mostly talks about himself. Take my word for it, if you are his friend, see what he has to say. Like always, he reveals things inside of himself and generously shares with us. In this writing, he tells even more...............a lot more.

Growing up in America I saved the best for last
If I had a bag of candies, I saved the very best one to eat last.
But in the meantime I would eat all the "not-so-good ones" quickly, to get to the best one
Did you do that as a child, and what country did you grow up in? Come share your story with us, about saving the best for last, OR about anything else.
Let's get to know YOU - through your… Continue

An earthquake is just the beginning of the real problem at hand - dealing with the victims, the reconstruction, the lives that must start anew.
Following the news in Italy shows just how vast the problem reaches, with every so often a story that warms your heart: a dog found after 8 days, reunited with happy owners, or trains stopped in the station to give a warm "home" to many who were left without.
Read some of the things written in the Italian paper and on television and a few… Continue

Some heartwarming stories of Easter day at Aquila, Italy - volunteers, and generosity.
Living in Italy daily news tells us about the earthquake, the people, the victims, but Easter day offered some reasons for smiles, some very needed smiles.

The thing I like to teach others the most is to accept people who are different from us. I have learned that over lifetime experiences of meeting foreigners, and being a foreigner in Italy.
Come share YOUR story of what YOU have to teach others!! Just a few sentences....it would be VERY INTERESTING to hear from different countries, that's the whole idea of this group!

The 15,000 Stories
group was created during the Gaza war when the tension here was really built up and people needed a place to share their personal stories and have a place to relax. And not only for THIS! It was and is a place to share stories from all over the world
....and a place to be able to learn about each and every one of us here on iPeace. People started to show up, leave stories, have a virtual cup of tea or coffee. There are stories from India, U.S.A., Morocco, Canada,… Continue

To those of you who so kindly asked if I and my family were ok here in Italy I want to say thank you for your kind words and attention. We are fine, in our town some felt the quake but not all. People who live on higher floors have felt the quake I have been told.
I had visited the city of Aquila (115 km from Perugia, the town I am in and 95 km from Rome) many years ago and stayed in a hotel that has been completely destroyed in the earthquake. We saw the news today and it was devastating,… Continue
