Ways to Care
“I think one’s feelings waste themselves in words, they ought all to be distilled into actions and into actions which bring results.”
How difficult it is for any of us to find the right words in times of need, both the person who may be in need of care, and the person doing the caring. How painful it can be, when sitting across from someone in a hospital bed, we find ourselves stuck without words.
When we find ourselves struggling for the words, literature holds many stories of suffering and care which may help us to expand our own understanding of what we need to survive such human experiences.
Our ‘Ways to …’ series of online events aim to open up the serious conversations that we don’t always know how to start. In this first session we’ll get different perspectives on what it means to care, and be cared for, by reading and sharing poems and stories reflecting on this topic.
Join us via Zoom from the comfort of your own home where The Reader’s Clare Ellis will read aloud and create a welcoming space where you can get involved as much – or as little – as you wish.
