Using Seance's for Disability History Month

Bumped into Kevin Caufield, from ALLFIE, in the lift at work yesterday lunchtime.

We did the usual lift thing exchanging hellos and smiles. However, the Lambeth Accord lift is notoriously slow, so we found ourselves in that state of suspended time where pregnant pauses stretch out to infinity.

“Busy Kevin?” I mused – always prepared for such occasions with an incisive silence breaker.

“Yes, very” came back Kevin, “I’m carrying out an oral history of disabled people in education over the past 100 years. However, the hundred year-old ones are the problem” quipped Kevin.

My parting advice to Kevin was, “Keep at it. You’re bound to dig something up”.

Careful how you go about your research, Kevin!

All right, I'm leaving!
