    Last night we heard two moving stories about disability and the challenges that face the family members and staff who care for people with disabilities. This morning when I read this article (http://www.theage.com.au/national/what-drove-a-doting-father-to-kill-his-sons-20090822-euh6.html) in the age I was struck by its relevance to the two stories we performed last night. I wonder if the news of Eddie Travaglia and his sons was known to the tellers last night or if it is a case of the collective unconscious at work. Either way, it is always impressive how playback shows seem to pick up on themes present in the public sphere. I wonder if the other two stories we heard (both love stories) will pop up in the newspaper this week?!

    I attended the show on the 23/8 and thought the performances were wonderful. I shared a story about my year (the ending of a longterm relationship and new beginnings) and the actors performed an exquisite and moving piece. I cannot imagine that they could have crafted anything more poignant and beautiful if they had worked for weeks preparing the piece. Instead it was done spontaneously. The facilitator also showed a lovely sensitivity with his questions. The night touched my heart and lifted my spirits. Thank you to all involved.
