Happy Father’s Day! Teach Your Children Well …

… and know they love you.  Happy Father’s Day! 

Teach Your Children Well, for Children Learn What They Live – 

If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.

If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.

If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.

If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.

If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.

If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.

If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.

If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.

If children live with fairness, they learn justice.

If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.

If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and in those about them.

If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

—excerpted from Dorothy Law Nolte’s Poem, Children Learn What They Live.

Somerville Mosaic Art Exhibition through April 7th

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Somerville Mosaic Art Exhibition 2018 – I recently went to Somerville Museum to see my friend Angel’s artwork at this exhibit. There, I came upon these beautiful mosaics created by two Artists from Cape Ann – Pamela Stratton and Mary Bowles. Both had a number of pieces there. If you haven’t been to this exhibit, I highly recommend it! 

 

Visual Art and Health – Medical professionals have increasingly recognized the role that creative arts play in the healing process. Arts in medicine programs are emerging worldwide. The Mass General Hospital’s (MGH) Illuminations program is an example of this.

MGH Illuminations – Good Morning Gloucester blogger and Photographer Donna Ardizonni currently has her photography on display at MGH Boston. During the June 2018 – September 2018 MGH Illuminations Rotation, my Annisquam Delight and others photos will be on display. Years ago, I attended an Illuminations Rotating Art Exhibition Opening. A very moving experience; one of my patients was a featured artist.  Art meant so much to her and brought a great deal of peace and she was the epitome of resiliency and HOPE.
