I wrote this piece after hearing Leigh Sales interviewed at Adelaide Writers Week last month. I loved her book, ‘Any Ordinary Day’ and was captured again by the way she spoke it. Most of all the surprising impact a Jesuit priest called Steve Sinn had on her understanding of the task of ‘accompanying’. Sales had not expected to feel a connection with Sinn as she is not a person of faith, but his take on how to be with people in trauma changed her awareness of the need to be present.
