The important stuff happens on the floor. Patient care is the center. But if I’m doing paperwork, or I’m giving injections does it change who I am as a nurse? If you don’t change and you don’t grow, who are you anyway?
The snow is glittering this morning. I used to like the snow, and then I ended up having to drive in it all the time. Glitter is the daily prompt. You put glitter on pants, on shirts, on dresses, on birthday hats. If you put beads in your knitting (an art I haven’t mastered yet),… Continue reading Glitter

It’s all Hallow’s Eve. Of course the prompt is eerie . I’m mildly surprised it isn’t haunted or ghost or zombie or something. And of course Eerie can be anything. Music for example is a brilliant example of eeriness. Shubert’s unfinished symphony #8 for example, is classic Halloween music. The creepy basement where I work is… Continue reading Eerie
