Don't Curse the Nurse!

What -is -it?

art

I don’t always see it between my patients and their family. It bothers me, so I’ve thought about it and come up with this.

I think Love is art.

Sometimes I see a piece of work I don’t understand.

You can look at a piece, whether it be an oil painting, mixed media, a sculpture, and not see what anyone finds so appealing, but, if it pleases the eye of someone, makes that person smile, or inspires them, it is art. It is expression, and an expression that makes someone feel, can, in my opinion, be called nothing else but art.

Love is the same way.

Someone told me once that the opposite of love is apathy.

The love might need to be sculptured, have the rough edges smoothed out, but its still love.

I’ll take it any day over apathy.

And I’ve never seen apathy in my workplace.

Thank you Lord.

I am always impressed with the quality and intent of what is posted on the Kindness Blog.  A recent post featuring the work of an artist that ties in graphics with medical / mental health conditions is incredible.
