• Keynote speeches from Andrew Davies, from the Welsh Health Minister (Vaughan Gething - filmed), from Baroness Eluned Morgan and from Phil George all stirred me. It was enriching, uplifting and most of all system-shifting. I was present in the Swansea Bay area. I was humbly learning that this area was a shining beacon of care, health and wellbeing, a shining light of storytelling, arts and ultimately love. I feel more awakened, more alive. I note that I must take this back over the water, across the border to England. We badly need this caring loving ethos in England. One insight of the keynotes sticks out, “Storytelling is not just a ‘would like’ but a ‘need’” from Eluned Morgan.
