Tiny Stories™ – The Power of Storytelling
"If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten."
- Rudyard Kipling
The Power to Transform
Stories have power. They delight, enchant, touch, teach, recall, inspire, motivate, and challenge. They help us understand. They imprint a picture on our minds. Our storytelling ability, a uniquely human trait, has been with us as long as we’ve been able to speak and listen. Not only do people love to tell stories, people love to hear stories!
Compass Senior Living presents Tiny Stories™ Project preserving the legacy of hundreds of captured stories told from our resident’s perspectives speaking about different points in their lives. You can read it, you can listen to their voices, see their photos and imagine being in their shoes! Click here to learn more.
We have a unique opportunity to harvest the wisdom, the humor and memories we hear every day. We live and work beside elders who have journeyed almost a full century on this planet. Through their stories, we connect with one another while giving our resident storytellers the opportunity to reconnect with what was once taken for granted. We give them the opportunity to share their memories for generations to come.
Through the simple process of capturing these memories, or tiny stories, we create a profoundly enriching experience for both the storyteller and the recorder. Elders tell their stories of adventures, challenges, and wisdom acquired along their life journey. Deeper connections are made. And, the tiny stories can be preserved forever on digital media and libraries.
Bob Brophy was a beloved resident at Peachtree Village Retirement in Roswell, New Mexico. He loved telling his stories and passionate about sharing them—with anyone that would listen. We’re certain that Bob would say thank you for listening.
