Today was National Tell a Story Day. I came across this holiday last year on a website that lists all the interesting and quirky celebrations associated with each calendar day. Last year I told a strange story about getting lost in a church basement, in the dark. (You can read that story HERE)
This year I intended to tell a hilarious and rather embarrassing story on myself, about an incident that happened to me earlier in the week. However, thankfully, I don’t have a single photo to accompany that story. I’ll save that tale for a future post…or bury it in my subconscious.
Thinking about my lack of photos brought to mind the old adage…“A picture is worth 1000 words”…and an idea was born. I asked Facebook friends who wanted to play to start with their last photo in their phones, count back 25 pics, and post that snapshot with an explanation. I let their photos tell stories, for Tell a Story Day. And rather than one story, I get to share twelve, in candid photos.
“The cup I would love to have and I saved the picture. My grandkids call me ‘The Bird Lady’. Best part is they are appreciating birds and can identify quite a few or else they look them up to see what they are!!” Rebecca
I appreciate everyone who played along. These pictures represent 12,000 words! And more than that, they represent 12 unique lives, all telling unique stories, which seems to be a very appropriate way to celebrate National Tell a Story Day!
