A new way of seeing

They came, they ‘saw’, they listened.

Good RNC

Thank you to the wonderful trio of talented writers and story tellers from the RNCB, who visited the Forbury recently. Delivering THEIR work in a community setting, other than their campus is, I think it is fair to say, rare. Rather than be the inspiration of other’s stories, this time they were the story tellers. Either blind since birth, or with a deteriorating eye condition, they put aside their fears, and dived in – and what a rich vein of stories they uncovered.

There was some anxiety before arriving: ‘how should I behave’, ‘what do I say’, ‘I don’t know old people’. Nonetheless, it didn’t seem to hold them back or quell any enthusiasm. Last week they returned with their interpretations, performing to an enthusiastic audience, who were behind them all the way. I admired their bravery, standing up and telling their stories. Tender, touching, funny, they have inspired me.
