I welcome you to join me in viewing this lyric video which I composed and performed in honor of our nurses and caregivers, to celebrate Nurses Week 2021. I'm hoping you will share this with others as well. It was written as a responsive art piece after sitting in group and supporting my work peers through peer support groups related to the mayhem of Covid19. It has been my pleasure this last year, aiding in holding the space for colleagues to share their stories and bring voice to their worries. Being a nurse is a really hard job right now. These people are warriors of caregiving and have expert knowledge. I am often in awe of their dedication and courage.
Thanks go to the visual artists who allowed me to feature their work. They also hold a vision for honoring our nurses and medical workers. Thank you to Megan Keating, photographer and Agnieszka Kubinska, colored pencil artist - your work is featured in the video. Your generosity with your gifts is amazing!! Thank you! Thanks also to the always amazing Liam Davis for his added touches in mixing the three voices together and adding the special sauce. So, Happy Nurses Week 2021. May you be well, and may we all get through this together, to come out wiser on the other side. Please share this song. https://youtu.be/gGI0jI3srh8 It is my gift to you. Remember to subscribe to the YouTube channel - there's more music coming soon.
What do you do to maintain your resilience, to bounce back, to be available for others over and over again? I’d really love to hear. Knitting? Cooking? Running? Fishing? Riding your tandem bike with your grandson? What brings you breathe, time, perspective, and joy?? Victoria Storm, MM, MT-BC
