Participant Story: George

Placeholder for audio testimonial.


(spoken as a facilitator)

I had a great moment in my gallery conversation today. There is a man in my group who usually seems uninterested in the program. He does not smile at all, but his wife keeps bringing him back, and she seems to have a nice time. I am used to groups who smile and nod, and even laugh at my jokes a bit, so this participant has been hard to read. I know that even though he does not show enjoyment, it does not mean he is unengaged, so I pay close attention each week to get to know him better. Today I talked about a painting of a backyard garden and George told us about the vegetables he used to grow in his own garden, and how much he enjoyed it. It was great to see the connection!
