Tell Your Story

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are adjusting to the fall season. So amazing and quick summer has gone. How many pictures have we taken to remember our memories and be energized but what we did and how we enjoyed the season? But years from now, we won’t remember the stories that went with the pictures.

I thought I’d reference some stories we’ve captured, so you know your stories are just as important.

~ Travel to Villa Picalo and find a place that restores what you have forgotten.

What you have forgotten is yourself.

You have been too busy to notice the wonder of you.

And your eternal youth.

Reconnect with this sweetness of being in the moment and loving life.

Come rest your tired old bones and sit for awhile.

Travel to Villa Picalo

Laugher. I like laugher.

I was born on Thursday, May 14, 1936. This was a long time ago. Growing up where I grew up was fine. I didn’t know any different and because I didn’t know any different it was fine. We never lacked for anything and we knew our neighbors. I live in the same place as I did when I was a child. I love the countryside then and I love it now. Some of my favorite sights and sounds can be found in:

The Woods.

The Fields.

Don’t Eclipse Your Stories

Don’t Eclipse Your Stories
Your Stories: Stirring the Embers of Self-Discovery
I met Angie at a Townsquared meeting in Ballard one spring night. She is the Co-Founder & CEO of LifeCapsule Productions that provide personal documentaries for seniors to capture their stories and wisdom on film as well as video portraits for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Angie’s Story:
On one of my Christmas visits home I captured some of my grandmother’s stories on film in a pretty homemade fashion, but when she passed suddenly three months later, I shared it with my family as a gift and an honor to Gram.
The family cherishes the video and I was so glad I did the video, just in the nick of time.
Last year, I was volunteering at a retirement home on Greenlake and was hearing stories from amazing folk there. That’s when the light bulb went off ~ these people need their stories preserved too! So we started making films with residents there.
I started doing some research on the web about legacy type videos and realized there wasn’t much in the area. My first google search was generic; it was simply “legacy films for seniors.”

My Trip To Delphi © David Batts
Loss
I take a short step back to my boyhood and time served at St Edwards School Oxford (aka‘Teddies’). My mother was persuaded to enroll me there shortly after the death of my father. I remember the explanation for this move being that the school offered a ‘safer’ environment. Safer for whom and from what was not made clear, either way, the investment was to fail us both.

Boys Will Be Boys
I gazed down from the third-floor of the Work Block below. Boys streamed across the quadrangle along the four paths that neatly bisected the lawn, meeting at a kind of roundabout decorated with a gaudy floral display. They clipped, tripped and jostled each other at every opportunity, temporarily straightening at the bark of a patrolling teacher. It was a daily scene but entertained me none the less.
Imagine my delight one morning, looking down to see that the whole quad had been meticulously painted with white road markings! Boys embracing the new game, honked loudly, pausing at junctions, indicated wildly with their arms and generally created a decidedly ‘un-Teddies’ like chaos. I looked for the Warden (headmaster) and found him framed in the bay window of his study, observing the scene with seething impotence. Victory complete, the perpetrator was the champion of the world!
My Attention
was drawn back in the classroom. “The Ancient Greeks considered Delphi to be the navel of the earth.” I hadn’t considered the earth as having a navel at all. “Zeus sent out two eagles, one to the furthest point east the other similarly to the west and bid them fly to each other. He then hurled a great rock from Mt Olympus, to mark the spot where they crossed. That place boys was called Delphi, the center of the classical world”.

Fair enough, and easy as that I was hooked.
