A story worth telling with Ann Pelo

I have gained so much from this podcast series! To be present, to be in the moment, to use the Thinking Lens as a protocol to document.

The critical reflection of Director Kelly is open, honest and a provocation for me to revisit and critically reflect on my style of documentation.
