Here I am, encircled by people who all wish to tell a story. No, I am not at Custer’s Last Stand. I am at participating in Word On The Street: London – a course on journalism.
So now I am in the charge of the Light Brigade. Here I am being guided by people who know the ropes, so even with cannons to the right of me and to the left I will survive.
It’s like being part of the D-Day Landing. I will be victorious.
The great thing about this course is that my fellow warriors are also sharing their knowledge and feelings.
Today I can be reborn or revitalised. I hear of a person who runs a blog, another who wants to tell her story with pictures.
I am now Hannibal – not Lector but the general who took the elephants over the Alps.
