Wow. I met my Tapestries guy today, a gentleman called Vincenz from Germany. I was vaguely worried that we would have a hard time talking, and boy was I ever wrong! He talked for an hour straight, fascinating stories about life as a prisoner of war in French and American POW camps, and coming to St Louis from Germany. I have eight pages of notes to write up now. We set up a date for our next meeting, and I think he’s looking forward to it.
(Tapestries is a program where you interview a resident of a nursing home and help them write their life stories, ending up with a proper bound book at the end, using the Memories Inked software and publication system. There was training back in August, two people from church are already working with other residents.)
