Patched & Mended
FRIDAY 24 June 2016
Life is a patchwork, we make do and mend. So how do you survice the bad stuff?
GILES ABBOTT, the Uk's only blind professional storyteller weaves the tale of Pryderi and Manawydan from the Mabinogion together with the true story of how he lost his sight, aged 25 and living in Todmorden, and what he did in response.
A moving and uplifting story!
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
