A story for 2016
26/01/2016 - blog

Five years ago I published in my first blog post of the year a short folktale as a way of wishing a happy new year to all followers and visitors from this blog, and I kept doing it until last December, when suddenly, I discovered that my website (and the blog included) had disappeared in the virtual space. The hosting company vanished, and with it, all the hosted websites, leaving behind a lot of angry users. The funny thing is that this happened in 2009: my website has been working until this December 2015, when while performing a domain migration, the website ...


The Boy Who Drew Cats
17/11/2015 - blog

«Long long ago there lived a poor farmer and his wife with many children. As soon as one of their children was as tall as a hoe, they sent him to work in the fields. But they had a little child. Soo little that he didn’t reach a hoe, and their parents didn’t know what to do with him…» Folktales are full of children facing thousand and one dangers. Here they are one, two, three stories, or more. For little, middle and big ones.

The story within the story
24/10/2015 - blog

Ten years ago, on an autumn Saturday, I entered a bookshop to kill time waiting for the train and I found the book El sembrador de oro y otros cuentos del Tíbet, from Iñaki Preciado. Thanks to this book I discovered the stories told by a wondrous corpse, a wonderful frame tale, in the style of Arabian Nights, very well know in the Tibetan culture. The book contained some of the folktales told by the corpse, but without revealing the end of the frame tale. I could not help but searching the end of that story. Little by little, the search became the storytelling session ...
