WITHOUT LIBRARIES WHAT HAVE WE? WE HAVE NO PAST AND NO FUTURE (RAY BRADBURY)



This morning, Peter and I had a productive zoom meeting with Ian Davies Abbott, Lecturer and Lead in MSc Dementia Studies Course from the University of Bangor. As previously mentioned, the University are going to be reading "Slow Puncture" as part of their curriculum for their MSc Dementia students. To complement the book, Ian thought it would be good to record our take on "Slow Puncture", our views on friendship, on having a sense of purpose in life and, most crucially, on the many transitions which occur upon a diagnosis of dementia.


It is quite a thought that "Slow Puncture" has navigated its way to Wales, where it will rest on the library's shelves. It is a touching notion that it will be there for the future, to be thumbed through, and perhaps even (dare I say it) annotated by the more eager students, as they strive to enhance their learning.


Whilst it does feel something of a legacy for us, the biggest satisfaction upon doing this voice recording is that Peter's words - a man who lives with the condition and who has his own very definite views about how to live well - will be heard and doubtless incorporated into the students' practice when they graduate. And that can only be a positive outcome.
