The vault of new stories at The Elder Storytelling Place is again running low. If you have contributed in the past, surely you have more to tell us. If you have not yet contributed, many readers await your tales of love and life and pain and sorrow, of what you have learned and how you have laughed. Here, perhaps, is some inspiration:
