Ron Teachworth is an artist, filmmaker and a writer. In all of these mediums he deals with the metaphysical. His thirty years of painting, and his independent feature film Going Back, as writer/director, contributed to his ability to tell a story that brings people back. His college teaching experience and his Jungian background has given him insight into the universal psyche of young people. Two Stones is a combination of story, photography, and ancient symbolism. Two Stones Young Analisa stands quietly in the late afternoon sun on the shore of Lake Michigan, preoccupied with the memory of an argument between her parents just shortly before their arrival to their vacation cottage: So begins Ron Teachworth’s short story "Two Stones." So distracted is Analisa that at first she fails to hear a voice, and when she does is startled to find that the voice is that of a stone: "Don´t be afraid," the stone tells her. "I am here for you to find. I have been waiting a long time. Please don´t be afraid." Reading between the lines of this entertaining story for young people, we detect the inner workings of the Self, the whole of who we are, with its fragile persona. The two stones become a metaphor for the young girl’s parents. Out of the depths of the Self comes native wisdom and insight, and for Analisa the teaching of the stones is the basic text of being in relationship with others. Ron Teachworth is a writer who tells stories of depth to and about young people.
Many of the pages have an optional “Paint Me” feature for children to finger paint the pages and create their own custom version of the book.
