Yarn Storytelling: Eat Your Feelings

Today I want to start with a clip from Yarn Storytelling.
I read it is a bi-monthly storytelling event held in bars, cafes, and homes around Brisbane, featuring true stories told live and without notes.
I liked very much what I saw and I appreciated the sincerity and the honesty in the exibitions.
The following video you may watch a very touching story by Joanna Lezanski.
Here is a descrition from the clip: Self-described as a show pony who is totally tone deaf, has no rhythm and dabbles in bad acting in pantomimes; Joanna gave up her obvious talents and stage presence at an early age, for a less fulfilling career in law. Joanna’s story is about being diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and the impact it has had on her life and on the lives of those around her. Also described as 'the day she paid $12 for a loaf of bread'.
