This title is inspired by the month and weather we have been having, yes, but it is mainly inspired by the powerful experience of the burden burning ceremony that took place this past Wednesday, April 26 at noon in front of the hospital.

What a Wonderful World”

This is Carrington Kay checking in after our first month as Healing Arts Artists-in-Residence. It is truly incredible that a month has passed, but even more so because of the amazing giving and receiving found within it because of the Healing Arts.

I have to tell you, Mrs. B was a gift.
I met her on 10 South—oncology and palliative care—in January, soon after I started as artist-in-residence. Some patients are hesitant to work with me (I’m not an artist, they’ll say. Oh, I can’t draw at all.). Even after I assure them that my kind of art is about the process, because, well, actually I’m a writer, they’re still unsure.
