Some Examples of Stories
She was bursting in bloom. Pink flowers everywhere, covering every branch. Her trunk was full of moss. She lived in a neighborhood in Kirkland, in the state of Washington. Her name was Paramithou.
Paramithou had really special roots. All trees do, but her roots were particularly magical. They extended far far out there, in all directions. Her roots were home to many underground creatures. Specifically the Flamingoloons and the Lemur Bears. The Flamingoloons looked like flamingos but were much smaller and instead of pink they also were lavender in color. Now the Lemur Bears were very similar to the lemur mouse if you have ever seen one, however, they are a little larger and they were light green and lavender.
They were also the Snakertilies. A type of snake that was lavender with light green sparkles. The Snakertilies would curl up underneath right where Paramithou’s roots began to extend out. They lived closer to her trunk.
The Flamingoloons made a small nest on top of the roots with the earth there from under the ground. Paramithou did not mind. There were also the Earth Blooms that looked like flowers. They grew all around Paramithou’s roots. They had a magnificent aroma that smelled like vanilla lollipops. The Lemur Bears slept under them.
They were all friends the Flamingoloons, the Lemur Bears, the Earth Blooms, and the Snakertilies. They loved Paramithou, and she loved them.
Paramithou lived and had friends above ground and bellow ground.
She would tell them all stories about life above ground. The people that passed by, the cars, the squirrels, and bunnies, the birds that would fly and sing songs on her branches. She also told the creatures above ground about the creatures bellow. Paramithou never ran out of stories to tell! There were so many fascinating events happening above and below.
The moon also listened with curiosity and excitement about the earth down bellow. And the moon would tell Paramithou about the amazing interesting things she saw out there in space and on earth as she had the best view in town!
She saw all kinds of fascinating things from way up there. The moon never interfered or judged what they would be doing, she only observed as if she was watching a very funny movie. Sometimes she giggled at the things humans and animals did. Even the trees did some silly things occasionally!
Paramithou made it possible for the moon and the creatures above to share their life, and experiences and funny stories with the creatures below.
The creatures above never got to meet the creatures bellow in person but it did not matter. They all made each other’ life even more of an adventure. Especially the Lemur Bear they laughed a lot. Whenever they heard a story they would lie on their back with their front and back paws swirling them around as they laughed and laughed. Even the Snakertilies which were naturally serious creatures could not help but laugh a little too at this sight.
When Paramithou would laugh her pink flowers would drop and float down to the ground. So you knew she was a joyful creature.
Paramithou (Παραμυθού) means storyteller.
Athootita: The Cherry Blossom
Once upon a time in the middle of a small park in Austria, was this beautiful cherry blossom tree. Her name was Athootita. She stood in the middle of an open area full of grass. Athootita was truly magical! Covered in pink flowers, she sparked. Occasionally a breeze would come causing a rain shower of pink petals flying elegantly, like snow.
Athootita was invisible to most people. Hundreds of people walked inside the park in a day yet not many noticed her. This was quite strange as she was spectacularly gorgeous. She always made sure she was completely covered in flowers.
Each of Athootita’s branch was different and beautiful in its own way. Each made a stunning photograph. Her pink flowers were so special that you could not help but stare at them for hours!
The bees loved Athootita too! And some butterflies too!
Athootita was Rein and Ma`ema`e’s best friend. Rein was eight years old, and had long straight blonde hair. She was from Germany. Ma`ema`e was ten years old, with long straight black hair. She was from Hawaii from the island of Kauai. Rein and Ma`ema`e would visit Athootita often.
They would place Athootita’s trunk in the middle, and make a circle around her, holding their hands together, swinging around. This was their favorite thing to do! They especially loved it when Athootita would move her branches, so that there would be a rainfall of pink petals flying all around them, covering their hair. Athootita did it every day.
One day as Rein and Ma`ema`e were running and swinging around Athootita’s trunk giggling and feeling so happy, a swarm of white butterflies came and landed on Athootita’s trunk. The butterflies made a circle around Athootita’s trunk as well. It looked like a beautiful butterfly reef. Rein and Ma`ema`e felt even more excited now. “Welcome,” they said to the butterflies.
All the butterflies had a black dot on their one wing. The girls and the butterflies began to make circles around and around. Athootita made circles with her pink flower petals. The bees watching, decided to do the same. You can imagine how beautiful this view was! The children, then a little bit above the butterflies, then above that a ring of pink petals, and above that the gentle loving bees.
Shortly after some hummingbirds joined in too! The rabbits in curiosity slowly began to gather around Athootita, making an outer ring around Rein and Ma`ema`e.
Athootita made it so that every being was floating in a rain shower of pink petals. They all felt as if they were traveling in an enchanting dream.
After a few minutes, they stopped. Rein and Ma`ema`e leaned with their back against Athootita and stood there feeling immensely happy and grateful. The butterflies and rabbits did the same. The bees and hummingbirds landed on her branches. They all remained silent and still enjoying each other’s company and the beauty of these moments.
This was Athootita’s gift. Her innocence brought joy to all the creatures around her, showing them what an amazing beautiful gift life is. She allowed each one’s innocence to shine and be.
Athootita (αθωότητα) means innocence in Greek.
Ma`ema`e means pure in Hawaiian
Rein means pure in German.
