My Mother's Artwork
Hi Again. I thought I'd address the question I posed about how creativity can help grieving. When my mom was on hospice (she was only on hospice 3 weeks until she died) I had the idea of putting together a little chapbook of her paintings and my poetry. I bought a tripod for $20 and took digital photos of 20-25 of her paintings. Then, over the course of a weekend, I put together a 24-page booklet of her paintings with my poetry. Most of the poetry was written about her, during her battle with Alzheimer's. I'll show you an example of the poetry in another post.
