The Story About a Place in My Life

Up until this century, 90% of the world’s population was born, lived, and died with with-out ever leaving a ten-mile radius of their homes. While this is difficult for us to imagine, our sense of place is the basis of many profound stories. One of the earliest inter-active storytelling Web sites was a German project, 1,000 Rooms, that invited people to send a single image of their room at home, and to tell a story about their relationship to their room. Hundreds of people responded with their own intimate stories. You may have a story about your home, an ancestral home, a town, a park, mountain, or forest you love, a restaurant, store, or gathering place. Your insights into place give us insight into your sense of values and connection to community.

-How would you describe the place?

-With whom did you share this place?

-What general experiences do you relate to this place?

-Was there a defining experience at the place?

-What lessons about yourself do you draw from your relationship to this place?

-If you have returned to this place, how has it changed?
