Our Living Stories pic 18 May 201418 May Blog: Our Living Stories performance at Essex Church in Notting Hill Gate was a warm heart- & mind-expanding experience for all.
The first story was of the recent suicide of good friend. Someone with a psychiatric condition, he chose not to live a half life on drugs. Refusing to take them, his last weeks led him to suicide or was it a liberation? Our teller is not angry with his friend for this choice.
Our second story honoured those in our families who are the silent, almost invisible ones who do the menial work and are often overlooked. They endure so that others may live sweetly.
Our third story celebrated a mother who refused to accept death or anything less than freedom to live a full life in the face of pogroms and borders.
Very different life choices that hold a light to our own.
Our stories took us around the world. Thank you London for bringing such a diverse audience together for a rich gathering and exchange.
Yummy Chinese dinner for some of us afterwards in Queensway, round the corner!
