"Stories are told 'eye to eye, mind to mind, and heart to heart'". This is too well said. This evening, we left the Scottish Storytelling Centre feeling lost, perplexed, overwhelmed, tangled, and refreshed. These colours were nothing unlike the weather we had today.
The innovative music still lingers as I write this and somehow it wants to speak through the impromptu narration. I don't want to argue. I let it in...
This echoes well with the artwork greeting us at the reception room of Glenalmond College we visited in the morning.
The world is in fact designed to be universal. Seeing Woody Law (graduate of YWPS) wearing a kilt as a student of Strathallan School gave us all a pleasant surprise.
Mrs Lam and Mrs Ho skipped part of the planned tour this afternoon to be involved in a more adventurous narrative as they hired a cab from Glenalmond College to ironically their competing school to meet Woody and his brother. To our Headmistress, this visit was the best so far. Stories should always have a surprise element, and she got hers.
She brings us vision and circumstances, characters and twists. I see life from the fusion of the music she creates, eye to eye.
I had been bringing a copy of my literary project in my backpack in case someone poetic would pop out during our visit - yet I hadn't met anyone of that kind. Tonight, I found this lady in red.
I thanked her for the stories she gave me through her creative performance. We do need more artists like her to keep arts alive and young. The show might not have had a lot of people in the audience, but each one of us was inspired as if we had read a book of musical poetry, listened to songs of innovative literature, danced a new dance in mid-air, with a glass of fine Scottish Whisky.
P.S. I don't have questions to ask today. Perhaps you should be the one asking...be inquisitive and explorative!
