TELL ME A STORY - ORAL AND WRITTEN HISTORIES



   

 

Why Tell Your Story?

When my parents received their beautiful and professionally done life story book, their eyes were wet with tears! Choosing pictures, recording their memories, and then pouring over the books together brought our entire family closer than ever. I especially remember the pride in my mother's face when she first received her personal history...it helped her to see and appreciate all the varied accomplishments of her life in a new way, and it made her feel very special. That was priceless!

My son, Morris, used to say, "Mom, tell me a story about when you were little."



Nothing was too commonplace to be interesting to him;  no detail was too insignificant.

These were his favorite stories, told over and over again.

The time I got up at 5:00 a.m. to go fishing with my father.


The tale of Finian P. Rainbow, my first parakeet who never talked.




What will Morris remember about visiting Arrow Park Lake with his grandmother and me?

I wonder who will hear his stories...

I recall my grandpa's stories of "life in the old country", but how I wish I had recorded them when he was alive.
