An inspiration to us all, Sarah Wheeler

Anna Sexton25 April 2016

Last week we learnt that our friend and colleague, Sarah Wheeler, from the Dragon Cafe passed away.  Those of us that met Sarah as part of ‘Dig Where We Stand’ were fortunate to work alongside someone with such warmth, energy, enthusiasm and wisdom.  She was a visionary and an inspiration:

“And just as astonishing is the knowledge

That we are, more or less,

The makers of the future.

We create what time will frame.

And a beautiful dream, shaped

And realised by a beautiful mind,

Is one of the greatest gifts

We can make to our fellow human beings “, Ben Okri, Mental Fight.

We echo the tribute given to Sarah on the Dragon Cafe website: http://dragoncafe.co.uk.
