Lorin?s world is all positives
By KIREN THANDI
HE may be legally blind, but Lorin Nicholson can See Sharp very well.
Casuarina Steiner School kids ? and teachers ? were in for a treat yesterday when See Sharp came to perform for them.
Students got to find out what it's like to live in Lorin's world, with some of them being blindfolded themselves, and having to work out what shape objects were.
Lorin also showed them how he 'sees' TV ? not by actually watching, but by listening very carefully to dialogue and music.
While Lorin played tunes, students had to guess which animal was being musically symbolised.
See Sharp comprises of Lorin, a guitarist, and Trevor Donaldson who, as well as being Lorin's father-in-law, is a teacher with 30 years of experience in Primary and Sec- ondary education.
During the presentation, Lorin demonstrates a wide variety of musical styles while imparting to them the challenges faced by the disabled, encouraging students to be more accepting of people with differences, motivating them to look for the positives in their own lives and the lives of others.
Lorin's sincere message coupled with his performance on the guitar, leaves a lasting inspirational message in the mind and heart of the audience.
