I received my Sam stone as a gift from a Vt. artisan store owner after
making a small buy, she placed it into my bag And, I am so happy that
she did. I love reading about Sam and his thirst for life and
enjoyment of his many hobbies. I was personally going through a rough
time having just recently lost both of my Grandparents within months
of one another to cancer. Sam’s message was a strong one for me.
Although losing someone we love hurts…we must move on and continue
to enjoy life as they undoubtedly would want us to do. Drink up every
minute and ‘eat the World’:) thank you so much for sharing Sam’s
journey with us and I pray that his message continues to touch more
lives everyday. I personally put my samstone in a mini rose bush
planter and often move the stone to different plants on my sun porch.
Whenever it catches my eye as I water the plant my heart smiles and
heals just a little bit more. Thank you and Sam so much for that gift.
May God keep watch over you and yours…~Amy

Yarkon River – Israel

I placed the 2nd Samstone here - https://goo.gl/maps/nzb0J . It is in the trunk of the tree which is a bit right to the center of the picture.

The picture was taken at a drier period, and today this place looks much greener – checkout the photos to get a sense of the place. It is also at the bank of the Yarkon river, some 4 km from my home. A pack of jackals made this area their home which is a bit stranger considering it is in the midst of an urban area and they are hanging around during my morning runs.
Cheers,
Shmul

Yarkaon River – Israel

I placed one here – https://www.google.co.il/maps/@32.101823,34.7775345,18z inside a tree trunk. I wouldn’t be surprised if some kid will find it and throw it to the Yarkaon River (funny calling it a river, but this is as close as it gets in Israel). I do 95% of my running alongside the Yarkon and the park which extends from the sea to the east. Nice place.

 

I told the kids yesterday about Sam and showed them the Samstones sites and the pictures. Everybody agreed he was a beautiful boy and thought the memorial idea you have is a good one. Honoured to be a small part of it.

 

Cheers,

International Dateline – North Pacific

Posted by: samstone @ 1:35 am

Our good friends Brynn and Carl  are on the move again.. !

 

Greetings from the Bering Sea -

I will send photos later, when we’re back to being connected to faster Internet, but thought I would send a note for now telling you of where we’ve placed SamStones.  I’m sure there are others in Shanghai, but we left one there, we put one on Jeju Island, S. Korea, ones in Kyoto, Mt Fuji, and Tokyo Japan, Petropovlosk-Kamchatsky, Russia, and deposited one in the Bering Sea, just north of the Allusion Islands near the International Dateline. I hope that some of those locations are new to the map of placements.  This evening we will pass through the strait into the Pacific.  We won’t arrive in Vancouver until Tuesday.
I hope all’s well there with you and yours.
Blessings,
Brynn
