We don’t like to think about it, or perhaps we do, but death is an integral part of life and should be honored through story-sharing.
Did you preserve the frog you dissected in high school in a jar, much to your mother’s dismay? Or did you save your only child’s very first baby tooth? Or after your father died, did you find your grandmother’s art deco jewelry box in the back of a closet with a lock of his hair from his first baby hair cut?
Or maybe you have a child’s urn--with the remains of your first dog--who your parents insisted on cremating rather than burying in the back yard?
So bring your bones, feathers, teeth, ashes, locks of hair, hair art, body parts preserved in a jar, death-related art, cremation jewelry or urns and share their story. . .Every Thing (death and life-related) has a story.
Show & Tale is like Antiques Roadshow meets The Moth, or your favorite Pinterest board come to life!
Everyone is welcome to share the story of the thing they keep.
Remember you don’t have to show and tell. . .you can just look and listen; observers are always welcome
