About Tammy T. Stone

Tammy T. Stone is a Canadian writer, photographer and chronicler of life as it passes through us. A wanderer at heart, she’s mesmerized by people, places and all of our wildest dreams; the world is somehow so vast and so small. She feels incredibly lucky to have been able to work, learn and live abroad, writing, photographing and wellness-practicing along the way. She invites you to see her photography here and to connect with her on her writer’s page, Twitter and her blog, There’s No War in World. Her first book, Formation: Along the Ganges and Back Again, published by Prolific Press, is available here.

    By Tammy T. Stone A day is long, a life is short. That’s how it feels, anyway. Isn’t this interesting?

  By Tammy T. Stone This will be short and sweet. The thought came to me and I couldn’t shake it---I wanted to share it. I thought that maybe if I needed to hear it, you might too. It matters that we are here. I don’t exactly know how it matters. Even if I did, [...]

  By Tammy T. Stone   I am a writer. This means that I am also---by nature, inclination and disposition, with everything in me---a devoted reader. Since the time I was a young girl sneak-reading under my blue-and-white checkered Mickey Mouse and Pluto covers with a flashlight, devouring everything from Archie Comics and Choose Your [...]

A New Year with Our Beautiful Old Selves.

  By Tammy T. Stone Plain and simple: our thoughts are never entirely new. Imagine if every time you had a thought, a little fact-checking creature inside of you rang a gong and shouted, “Unoriginal thought! The thought you just experienced already occurred at place X, by person Y, in the year Z.” To be [...]

Walking into Lonely. {Poetry}

  By Tammy T. Stone It’s a brave thing I’ve come to think To be lonely when connections Have been severed To be without defenses Which have caged us so long Finding our steps into any of Various paths marked in ways Which defy our understanding.

Introverts Need People, Too.

  By Tammy T. Stone All my life, I’ve lived in my head. My mother tells me that they used to sit me on the windowsill of my grandmother’s apartment when I was a wee one and while everyone else chatted away, I’d stare out the window, occasionally pointing at things and asking, “Sta?” I was [...]

  By Tammy T. Stone   I haven’t seen her in years---a feisty, mama-bear, older woman selling books to tourists in a sleepy Thai town by a river. Kanchanaburi is not far from Bangkok, famous for its River Kwai and immortalized in the movie “The Bridge on the River Kwai,” inspired by the horrible events [...]
