Inniswood Garden Story

Tell the story of how life began

“Life began _______”

You can make up a story.  You can retell a story.  You probably don’t want to just cut and paste a story in a comment.  Or maybe you want to.   I would rather you don’t.  Thanks.  You can tell a story in installments in the seven days of the drawing (if you started on Sunday.)   Starting today tell the story of how life began in five installments.  Or tell a new creation story each day. Or tell a story each day you remember to comment from now through Saturday August 24, 2013.

The pavers in the maze at Inniswood Metro Garden tell a story about creation.   The story in the maze at Inniswood  is a Native American myth.

“Place it on my back” said a deep voice.

It was the Great Turtle who came up from the depths.”Totem Cirque du Soleil

I am posting parts of that Native American story told in the maze at Inniswood Metro Garden on the ’365 Things to do in Columbus Ohio’ page on Facebook.   You can tell that story here.  Take a walk in that central Ohio Metro Park this week.  Or tell  parts of that story.  The part of the story  about the Great Turtle.  Or the part of the story about the Muskrat.  The part  of the Native American story about the two Swans…

  1. Spelling does not count.
  2. Grammar does not matter
  3. Punctuation does not count.
  4. Word count does not matter.   Can you tell a creation story with minimal words?  Have at it.
  5. The creation story does not have to make sense.  Myths don’t make a lot of sense… to me anyway.
  6. The creation story can be original.  The creations story can be a creation myth of a culture (don’t cut and paste a myth here please, just paraphrase the story or part of  the story here.)   Or tell part of the Native American creation story told in the maze at Inniswood Garden.
  7. You don’t have to start the story with “Life began_____”
  8. Spambots are disqualified from participating!
  9.  Use a name.
  10. Put your email address in the E-mail box.
