Myself and Claire met with Rene Porteous, the life of the famous Glynn Porteous. An amazingly interesting person which I will meet again in June to record her stories. Rene invited us to her lovely home, sharing her unique collection. An amazing evening, thank you Rene.

Preparing for a session with mini_mima and mima_dreamers.

It was a much quieter morning then anticipated, we had four families the first day and three families the second day, but was a lovely mornings spend with local families.

The thursday afternoon I met with all the mima_dreamers, lovely young people, which I hope to meet again. We recorded a session or fortune telling stories about they history, dreams and family. Look forward to hearing all the recordings.
