During the summer of 2021, we had the privilege of working with our artist-in-residence, Clare Murphy to facilitate a number of workshops focusing on the importance of Storytelling.
This month, we have the pleasure of sharing a poem and painting focusing on the Meandering Road by one of our participants, Deborah O’Nyons, NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group. Thank you to Deborah for taking the time to share this with the South West Leadership Academy and our readers across the region.
By invisible threads we are connected
To those we have cared for.
Hands held; hearts soothed if only for a moment
Wishes upheld, voices heard, a soul witnessed
We are the remembering, of moments
Birth, death, rebirth, love and longing.
Observers, participants of transformation.
Season to season.
Yet, we cling to permanence
Habits, routines, schedules.
What if we allowed oneself to be enchanted?
To no longer fear change
