Deep in the rain forest, in the lingering mists of a towering waterfall, stands the Banyan Tree: an ancient meeting place for storytellers. Pause from your journey. Set down your pack and make yourself comfortable. Listen and let your mind travel with tales taking you into other lives, and other cultures. Share your smiles, your laughter, your pain, your joy -- share your travels through the land of human experience.
There are a vast array of comfortable niches to explore..... hammocks gently swaying in the warm breeze, and long strong branches to lean into as far above the earth as you wish to climb, rustic cedar lounge chairs with thick cushions to get lost in, as you listen to the stories being told.
When you feel the time is right, please share your *original* stories, journal entries, poems, anecdotes, folktales, narratives, memoirs, and other writings. Anything you write, we would like to see.
Join us.... in the shade of TheBanyanTree.
