Artists in Action

Artists in Action, Chapelwood’s newest program for teens and friends who have graduated school, is off to a fabulous start. It meets every Monday morning. Creativity of the students and leaders is unbounded and very impressive.  Their goal is to give back to the church and community and to have fun doing it. Persons who are homebound and persons on sick lists other places are the recipients of their art cards. If I were a photographer, I would post a picture of their amazing creations. The leaders with great tenacity got it off and running without the help of two leaders who were in the hospital at the time.

I was very ill for a long time with two hospital stays, a lot of pain and much pain medicine IV that put me in la-la land. Well on the mend thanks to Bob, my constant bedside companion, who kept me grounded to earth out of la-la land. Thanks also to the pigeons on the roof tops next to my hospital window and the window washers who entertained me with their safe antics. I could DO nothing but watch, making me revise my advice in the MOBILITY PLUS article to walk fast, talk fast and wheel fast.

Now that I’m slowed down (Bob says everything is relative to “slow”) I will cut out public speaking and concentrate on sitting at my computer to write for Circle of Friends and disability sites.

About Naomi

I am a writer and Christian educator who works in several genres with a specialty in materials for persons with disabilities. The Long Road Home Romance Collection includes one of my books (11/14), and I just finished the first draft of a Quick Look handbook to help persons who teach an inclusive classroom. I love playing and listening to classical music, fishing, doing family things, and, in spite of my non-interest in identifying birds, have come to name them because of my bird watching husband, Bob. My children and grandchildren, because of their expertise in different fields, have broadened my lens for looking at the world.
