This stone is for the story of the Monastery of Santa Maria de Moreruela:

“The monastery is located a few kilometres outside the Via de la Plata.
This is possibly the oldest Cistercian monastery in Spain. Its Construction started in the 1st half of the 12th century and was completed roughly a century later. It was partly renovated in 2007, but is still ruinous and authentic.
The church of the monastery is built in the Romanesque style, but with Gothic elements, such as the pointed vaults and the high apse.
The layout of the church and the remains clearly show that this was a huge building.”

She agrees and arranges for the couple to meet in the garden. But everything goes wrong and Celestina, the matchmaker, is murdered.
    The desperate Spanish Romeo then tries to reach his lover’s window via a ladder, falls and dies. Melibea does not want to go on living without him and jumps from the tower.
    The story is one of the most famous works of Spanish literature.”

    This stone is for the story of the Via de la Plata:

    “The Via de la Plata is an old historical route. It may have existed before Roman times, but was developed further in this period.
    Besides the many, special buildings of the Spaniards, Moors, Romans, Visigoths, etc., you will also find these Roman milestones along this route.
    They are characteristic of the Via de la Plata in particular.
    Literally, the Via de la Plata means “the road of silver”. There are various ideas about the origin of this name.
    Now walking here and having already walked a stretch of this path in 2019, the name, for me personally, relates to what a particularly beautiful camino this is.”

    “In July 2019, I walked with Jelle for 18 days on the Via de la Plata: the last part of this quiet route. The route turned out to be unspoiled, lots of beautiful nature and little tourism. The exceptional pilgrims we met were mostly solitary.
    And so is the route, unspoilt, alone, beautiful, rough and calling to me.
    And so here I am, with my house on my back, a head full of everything, mostly alone on the road but also with more special encounters than I had expected. Via de la Plata what an awesome adventure you are.”

    The church is located a few kilometres from the Via de la Plata, on a hill.”

    This stone is painted for Francisco de Zurbarán:

    “Francisco de Zurbarán was born in 1598 in this house, in Fuente de Cantos.
    He painted in the Baroque style, with the typical contrasting light. His work is somewhat more subdued and less dramatic than is typical of the Baroque. Zurbarán is less well-known than other Spanish masters, such as Velázquez. But was particularly loved for his beautiful natural renderings of fabrics and folds.

    This is a miniature painting after a detail from one of his works: “The Crucified Christ and a Painter” (ca. 1650). This painting is possibly also a self-portrait, with himself as the painter St Luke. In the original painting he looks up to Christ on the cross.
    But the complete painting does no fit on this small stone.”

    “The oldest Roman site in Spain. Founded as an Italian colony in 206 BC .
    Italica was designed and built in the famous Roman block-like city plan. It is also the birthplace of the Roman emperors Trajan (53 AD) and Hadrian (76 AD). Under their leadership, the Roman Empire spread far and wide. They left behind much in the way of art and architecture (Trajan’s column and Hadrian’s walls).

    This stone is for the Cathedral of Seville:

    “For many, and also for me, the starting point of the Via de la Plata.
    This cathedral is one of the largest medieval churches still standing. The 15th-century Gothic cathedral replaced a mosque. Part of the ground plan, as well as the 12th-century tower, the minaret, have been preserved as part of the cathedral.
    The name of this tower is the Giralda (Spanish for wind vane). It is named after the 4-metre-high bronze statue at the top of the tower, which despite its enormous weight seems to be able to turn with the wind…..
    The wind vane has been restored and examined by, among others, the University of Seville. For those who are technically interested, it is possible to obtain more information via this page.
    The cathedral also houses the tomb of the famous explorer Christopher Columbus.”

    This stone is dedicated to the story of Kitty. The story is told by Carin, on the occasion of Kitty’s birthday on March 27:

    “Kitty is very committed to people and is committed very socially to her fellow human beings. A few years ago she volunteered to go to Greece to help in the refugee camps. To this day she is still very involved with the people she met there, who in the meantime have become friends. She loves diversity, bringing together different cultures and different kinds of people.
    I admire her passion and commitment, and support her wherever I can. Somehow Kitty has a drive and an urge to “connect”. She can do this like no one else. She is the sun and gives energy to others. With this “symbolic” stone to give to her, I hope she will be able to make the “connection” with herself on her own “journey”. And thereafter make choices for her future. I want this for her, from the bottom of my heart.”

    This stone is dedicated to the story of Zozan:

    “From her own experience, as a mother with four children, who fled from her home country, she believes that art is the only right way to express her feelings. She tells the world their story by painting.
    Vita Hamo Zozan

    Zozan Hamo was born in Syria in 1976. She has been painting since she was seven years old.
    During her teenage years, she showed her early works at exhibitions in Syria. Through her training as a teacher and later founding her own family, she took a creative break.
    Because of the war in Syria, the threat to her family became so great that she and her family
    decided to leave the country together. Her husband left in 2015. A year later, she followed alone with their four children. Especially in Greece and in the Idomeni and Illiadis-Kalochori camps the situation was almost unbearable for them, so they turned around.
    Zozan has returned to painting this process, the traumatic experiences of her flight.
    Most of her work tells about the devastating journey and where the refugees came from (Syria) until they arrived in Greece. A recurring subject of her work is hopelessness and the feeling of being trapped and the free world around them.
    Feeling pure loneliness and abandonment, after they have to leave everything they are familiar with.
    Although she and her family have been safely reunited in Germany since 2018, her memory still haunts her.
    The experiences in Greece have left deep marks. But she has found her own way of expressing her feelings and telling her story to the world.
    When she is engaged in painting, she not only sees the pain, but also the hope and gratitude for yourself and everyone else
    Refugees who have come to safety at the end of a difficult journey.”

    This stone is for the Siberian tiger. It is dedicated to Artimosa:

    “The Siberian tiger is part of a series of traveling miniatures of endangered and vulnerable animal species.
    Through this art project I want to bring these beautiful animals to the attention.
    Spread the word and move the stone!

    The Siberian tiger, or Amur tiger, is a very rare species of tiger.
    It is the largest of all tiger species and lives in extremely cold conditions. For these conditions he has a dense winter coat with long hair, which is lighter in color than that of other tiger species. He also has a layer of 5 cm. fat. All this protects him against icy wind and temperatures of up to -45 ° C.
    The heaviest Siberian tiger in the wild, who was ever weighed, was a Siberian male of 384 kilos.
    To maintain their weight, they eat enormous amounts. Their diet consists of meals of sometimes 9 to 30 kilos.

    This tigerspecies lives in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nepal, Thailand and the east of Russia.

    The Siberian tiger was almost exterminated, with around 50 specimens in 1940. The population is now up to an estimated 1000 Siberian tigers.”

    This stone is dedicated to the story of Diane:

    “An Arirang stone for Diane.
    I would like to dedicate this Arirang stone to Diane Para. An inspirational woman, who found herself helping hundreds of people, when she didn’t expect it but when these people needed her the most.
    With love and respect, Kitty

    Her story, when I asked what her lifetime song is. How this question brought her full circle.

    Arirang
    “I didn’t think of this song quite some time until now. Truly, it is amazing how this brings me full circle. To the work I unexpectedly found myself doing in Greece to help the refugees. The current generation of refugees who find their homeland torn apart and enduring hardships and in need of hope for a country they love.”
    Arirang;
    It is a song for Koreans that we learn from childhood that adults sing to us…. we sing it our whole lives after that. It is a song I would sing around the house (totally out of tune) and play on the piano with two fingers as a kid not consciously thinking about what it meant.
    I find very comforting and it’s full of touching memories. It was sung to me by my grandmother and by my parents. I could feel the emotion it held for them, especially my parents who were living so far from “home.” (My grandmother traveled back and forth from Korea to visit us.)

    Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo…Arirang gogaero neomeoganda.
    Nareul beorigo gasineun nimeun
    Simnido motgaseo balbbyeongnanda.
    English
    Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo…

    Crossing over Arirang Pass.
    The one who abandoned me
    Shall not walk even 10 li before their feet will hurt.

    * It takes about 1 hour to walk 10 li, which was an old form of measure that is slightly more than
    4 km…. so in other words, your feet will ache not long after you leave your home.

    A song of hope, love, and longing for one’s homeland and for reunification.
    I have heard this song sung in America from when I was a baby, in South Korea, and I have heard it sung in impoverished, totalitarian controlled North Korea by children and adults alike.
    It is a song in which is embedded the hope for reconciliation and reunification and restoration of what was once the homeland of all the
    Korean people.
    I didn’t think of this song quite some time until now. Truly, it is amazing how this brings me full circle to the work I unexpectedly found myself doing in Greece to help the refugees. The current generation of refugees who find their homeland torn apart and enduring hardships and in need of hope for a country they love.

    My great grandfather disappeared in the 1890s after going to join the resistance against Japanese influence over Korea (Japanese invaded and occupied Korean more than once Korea was a colony for 35 years until 1945), leaving behind a young widow and two very young sons. His widow and son (my grandfather who died before I met him) and my grandmother who helped raise me for the rest of their lives always invited the displaced and anyone who was poor and suffering from hunger into their kitchen to feed them.
    After he became a successful entrepreneur, my grandfather had many business ventures and built an entire neighborhood of houses that he rented to people, and if his renters encountered some hardship in their lives and couldn’t afford to pay, he quietly gifted the houses to them.
    My grandmother would laugh and say he gave about half the houses in that neighborhood away.
    My grandfather died just before the Korean Civil War broke out and the remaining family fled as
    refugees, leaving behind my great grandmother who was too old to travel. She stayed in the house as
    soldiers and mercenaries from both sides came and went, taking turns living in the house, as power
    continued to change hands. My grandmother and my mother and her younger siblings lived in a crowded refugee camp for years, before returning home to find their grandmother safe, the house still
    standing, but most of their possessions missing or destroyed.
    That is my mother’s side of the family. I don’t know the entire story of my father, but I do know it involved being stranded with other refugees in a boat with a broken engine crossing the ocean
    between Korea and China, and he recalled suffering from terrible hunger and walking and walking,
    and having to carry a younger cousin who was too weak from hunger to stand.

    My parents survived, they returned to finish their university studies that had been interrupted by the wars, and both separately came to the United States for graduate studies and met and married here.
    Both wanted to return to Korea to help rebuild their country, but their friends that were still there discouraged them from coming home, telling them to stay in the US.
    Then, as they had children and increasing financial responsibilities, it became impossible for them to go home until decades later.
    My father died still hoping for reunification of one Korean homeland, and my mother had high hopes in the 1990s that she might see her country reunited before she dies, but now after the succession of US Presidents starting with George W. Bush reversing the Clinton administration and Kim Dae Jong administration’s “sunshine” policies that had begun thawing relations between North and South, she fears that reunification may not happen in her lifetime.

    Although I was born in a completely different sheltered atmosphere in safety and had never seen a refugee camp until I arrived in Greece, the song of Arirang, the song of the refugees longing for the home they love is deeply embedded in me.

    Thanks for taking me down memory lane and bringing the seemingly very simple song Arirang back into my consciousness, at a time in my life when I can understand and appreciate it in an entirely new
    and much deeper way.
    I haven’t thought about (or listened to) that song in years—probably not since my last trip into North Korea about 13 years ago. Of course at that time, it was touching and moving to me as a song of Korean reunification.
    Thinking about the song now and looking at the lyrics and what they mean, when I am at the age my
    parents were when I first remember them singing it to me… and after spending this past 19 months
    with the refugees… immersed in their stories, in their hopes and dreams, their longing for home,
    glimpsing the depths of their suffering, and touched to my very soul by their quiet strength to endure beyond, by the humanity and generosity they have shown when they have nothing and still give of themselves to help others…

    NOW I understand Arirang and how much more those simple words meant to my parents, my
    grandparents, and now to me.”
