Channeling Nightingale During the Plague

You may have noticed; you haven’t received a missive from me for over a month. Good reason, I suppose, because I have moved again! This time, I moved from living in a multi-generational home with my daughter and family, to my very own space, here in lovely Chesapeake Beach, MD. You know, moving is stressful…especially when you move into a place that needs some – ahemlots of “caring “ touches. (Remember that film, The Money Pit?)

Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you that I have been busy, since Miss Nightingale has gone underground! Yes, the new-to-me home has a basement that is now a virtual production studio. We’ve been broadcasting in live and pre-recorded presentations for The Marsh Theatre (SF), and conferences like INS, ANA, and Sutter Health. [Note: If you missed the Marsh Theatre presentation, it still lives on YouTube under their Solo Arts Heal.  ]

I’ve also managed to crank out some articles. I have attached the article from Speaker Mag CFN article 9- 20 you might like, from the September-October issue of Speaker Magazine. It was an issue that focused on The Year of the Nurse and Midwife, specific to our ~ 40 nurse members. It is quite an honor to be a part of this prestigious group and also an to be published in this magazine.

I pray this finds you well, as we navigate these troubled waters. We do know that adversity precedes innovation and change. Quoting Miss Nightingale here, “I would rather, ten times, die in the surf, heralding the way to a new world, than stand idly on the shore.”

Wishing you stamina and faith to see you through these difficult times.

Stay safe,
