My Heart Was Full by Tricia Scott

As I sit with a patient and we fold squares of colorful paper into cranes or cut up old magazines for a collage, we talk about how they have been creative in their lives, of art they’ve made in the past or things they’ve seen others do and wanted to do themselves. We talk about pets and places they’ve lived or about movies and books. In this first month with the program it has amazed and delighted me how excited everyone has been to dive into the projects I pull out of my art bag and how grateful the patients have been for a diversion or company.

Putting a smile on people's faces is such a delight! This morning a little 5 year old painted a yellow bird on a flowering branch. He and I told a story about his bird who sang such a beautiful song another bird befriended him. The two birds became best friends and sang happy songs in the forest for all the animals to hear. What a precious time with this amazing little fella!

I went today to do my dance at 5th floor Psychiatry. One patient in the end came to me and told me, ‘You made my day”. I am so happy to be able to accomplish this and make patients smile. Thank you all for letting take part of this beautiful journey.
Peace
