Lena: A 50 word story

A shift from the corporate world

To trailing spouse

Opened her eyes to new ways of being

I no longer aspire to have that big career.

Her life at a crossroads

The creation of new community in each location

I think ‘coming home’ was the toughest transition of all.





Farid: A 50 word story

The payment for a passport dear

from the white shores of Greece

to the artificial island of the Netherlands

My brother awaits me.

Once a home is now rubble

But aspiration for new remains

I worked for the Red Cross and now I am the one requiring aid.



Zurab: A 50 word story

A Georgian geologist who earned his living in Russia

Don’t worry, I will arrange it.

A close friend built like a bodyguard

Say something.

Speeches of great men and their families

Glasses raised: გაუმარჯოს [Gaumardschoss]

A helicopter lands where no roads exist

Yes, he is a real man.

Purpose in camouflage.

Alex: A 50 word story

Attaché par un noeud de huit

En suspension lors des relais

La promotion de la paix?

Vous avez du travail

J’ai participé dans un projet de dialogue

Mais c’est comme les chats et les chiens


Comment faire un secours

Si votre partenaire est blessé.

La suspension

En suspension

Attached by a figure-eight knot

Suspended at the belay station


You have your work cut out for you

I participated in a dialogue project

But it’s like cats and dogs


Practicing how to perform

a lead rescue

If your partner is injured.
