Great things about being blind. Accessibility of storytelling

Happy world storytelling day to all. I'm so glad I became a storyteller and story listener. Storytelling is one of the most accessible art forms for someone who is blind. It's all about the words and the language. It's all about the voice; its pace, tone, rhythm and words. It's all about timing. I don't need to worry about actions or props. I just listen and absorb stories. And as a storyteller; I feel my audience. Hear their laughs. Pick out a person by the laugh, a comment, sometimes even a cough or clearing of the throat. What a joy and an honour it is to be a storyteller and a story listener. To find out more about my storytelling performances or workshops contact me at
