Conseptual Art II

   I wanted a project or two to spice up life at the old folks home. 

   What if I set up my laptop, camera, and printer somewhere for free portraits.  Residents sit in a chair, I focus the digital camera on them and snap, and show the results on the laptop screen.  If it is a pose they like, I press PRINT and here comes a copy.

   What if I make an award of some kind for people who do kindnesses for others.  A huge poster saying something like "THANK YOU, EARL, FOR PUSHING WHEEL CHAIRS TO THE DINING ROOM."  It might say, 'THANK YOU, MARY, FOR HELPING SET UP THE MUSIC ROOM FOR OUR VOLUNTEER PIANO PLAYER." Or even, "THANK YOU, KAY, FOR LOOKING SO GOOD AND RAISING OUR SPIRITS."

BOTH great ideas!  Maybe you could CATCH on photo people in the act of kindness...OR at least put the picture of Earl next to the Thanks to him, so others will realize by sight who he is!  

GREAT IDEAS!  Keep em going...surely the Activities Director will welcome your suggestions, or your actions...less for HER to try to think up...and you have WAY more experience!

Anything that brings people together in community is great!
Love, Kate

    I think if you did all of that, you'd raise a lot of people's spirits.
