Thanks for the warm and thoughtful comments.
I've been wanting to post some of this stuff for some time. There were some logistical problems which I've now ironed out.
I have an idea of sorts. . . .
There's a lot of talent here at "allnurses.com". (Heck. . . . being a nurse is already a real and sometimes underappreaciated talent in and of itself!!!) People have posted some wonderfully written poetry, pictures, recipes, etc. Let's try to keep a thread going here at "allnurses.com" where people can "strut their stuff". There have already been at least two threads where people shared their original poetry and other stuff!
Just an idea . . .
So, if you write poetry, do photography, paint, cook (you can post original recipes!) . . . or do graphic artwork, animation, woodwork, sew, knit, make holiday ornamints, or do anything that can be seen worn, eaten, listened-to, felt, etc. . . (many of these things can be shared using photography) how about sharing your talent. . . . . .
If I can help out, I will.
Our hobbies, our crafts, our creative outlets are important to us. Heck, otherwise we wouldn't be doing them. At the very least, they relieve stress. Why not strut your stuff!?!? You're amongst friends here at "allnurses.com". Wouldn't it be a nice way to allow people to get to know you just a little bit more by sharing your inspired works?!?!?
Just and idea. . . .
Cheers to you all with deepest respect.
