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.

After the Fall: A Lesson in Mindfulness

Promoting Optimal Wellness for Mind, Body and Spirit

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today has me reminiscing about Nor’Easter Riley- derived from ‘Reilly,’ which comes from the Old Irish name Raghailleach.

(Video by Tucker Destino)

‘Sheltering-in-Place’ Nor’Easter Riley brought hurricane-force winds, astronomical tides, record-breaking waves and flooded roads. With flying debris and falling tree limbs, I chose instead to shelter-in-place and watch the 3-day storm unfold on the news and social media. Over the 3 days I watched as people were evacuated to safety, trees fell onto homes and branches through car windshields. Never did I expect during this Nor’Easter that I would end up injured in my own home!

Accidents Often Occur in the Home Despite my efforts to stay home and safe, while home alone I ended up falling down my basement stairs. Late that night my husband was on his way home with a weekend guest. I was distracted and hurrying down the stairs in stocking feet to get my laundry, while talking on the phone with my 90-year old mother. Slipping on the wooden steps as if on ice, my feet flew up in the air. Landing hard on one step, I bounced onto the next, then slid down 2 more, then ultimately the basement floor. My phone and I flew in opposite directions.
