The Elder Storytelling Place

Old people love to tell stories from our lives. They have lived long enough to have a lot of them and they get better and better with each re-telling until they are polished to a sparkling brilliance. Do they exaggerate sometimes? Certainly. Do they give the stories (and ourselves) better punchlines than what really happened? Of course. Because it's what they would have said or done if they had been as quick-witted then as they are now.

Sad, poignant, happy or funny, not infrequently our stories contain lessons they have learned and the wisdom they have gathered in their long journey through life and that should not be lost - which is what led to this blog.

Everyone's stories are welcome - except that you should be at least 50 years old.

There are a couple of rules and some guidelines for submissions. So Submit your story today: http://ronnibennett.typepad.com/elderstorytelling/about.html
