We all want to feel a sense of belonging and a connection with others. I found mine in the form of a yellow book that distinguishes all those on a similar journey to mine and we usually meet up in the queue at an Anti-Coagulant clinic in some part of London. I’m always curious about the other persons story and what brought them to that place. I have had many a conversation about the trials and the triumphs of it all so much so that I see our appointments as simply another page of the Yellow Book Club Meetup. (I’m sure we should do coffee mornings. I think I will suggest that)
It was an ordinary day and a conversation I had had many times previously but my conversation with Tim was somehow different. As Tim shared his stroke journey and his various health challenges, I felt privileged that he would take me into his confidence and share some pretty personal stuff with me. It was then I knew that he was going to be my first. The first person to take part in my 100 Conversations journey. He willingly allowed himself to be photographed. I like this shot because it not only captures Tim but also the ‘In’ sign and the ‘disability sign which signifies to me that no matter what you are challenged by you still fit in!
