Poem: The One’s in Blue – Written by a Nurse

The One’s in Blue

I know I should remember my name and how to dress, Yet I cannot fathom why I remember less and less.

Last week I went out shopping and

forgot where I called home,

I didn’t know where or who I was, I forgot I had a phone.

You are also getting tired, it’s plain for all to see, and I am not the same person, i am no longer ‘me’.

I cannot control my emotions, I shout out hit and curse, That’s why they came and got me, that’s where I met that nurse.

I can no longer tell you where I am or what is meant to be, But I do know that those ones in blue are there to look after me.

They help me with my clothes, they help me brush my hair, They help me try to understand why you’re no longer there.

I now feel less stupid by those ones dressed in blue, They care they love they laugh, my tears now falling few.

They point you out in photos, and talk of our life had, My memories of us together no longer feeling sad.

Our lives have turned out different, this was never part of our plan, But those ones wearing blue have turned “I can’t” into “i can”.

About Maria Weeks:

After qualifying as a registered nurse in 2019, she worked within a hospital ward setting until recently moving into a role within a nursing home on a dementia unit. Although she felt she would miss the clinical chaos of the wards, maria has been nothing but astounded at the level of care the care/nurse staff provide on a daily basis on the dementia unit. She wrote this poem as an example of how the staff here can transform a life lost to honour a ‘life lived’.

Flora Making Life Brighter & Happy for Others

My name is Giada Conte, I am 38. I am Italian, but I moved to California 3 years ago, where I live with my husband. No kids, no pets, no close relatives, just the two of us! I’ve been working for more than 15 years as a theatrical set designer and painter, extremely in love with my job, and with Arts in general. Then, one day in March 2020, all of a sudden, everything changed: theatres and live events closed their doors indefinitely, and I felt completely lost.

I have been trying somehow to adjust the new reality, of Covid 19, since the beginning of the lockdown and I committed myself to practicing positive-thinking exercises as a daily routine.

At least one happy word per day

I started focusing on all the privileges my life already had (and still has, more than ever): Family, Love, Energy, Colors, Memories, Freedom, Hope, Creativity… so I reached the 50th day, with the word ‘Joy’, the day I took my pencil and started drawing…

The day Flora came

She was a little whimsical character with the mission of making me smile. It worked! Initially, the idea was to write a children’s book about her, but then I just enjoyed so much spending time making art that I forgot about that plan. 4 months and 300+ drawings later, going through the shelter-in-place and the wildfires that forced me to stay safe inside, I still fill my days doing that, looking out the window, and dreaming through her eyes.

I thought that maybe Flora could have spread a bit of color and brightness to some other’s life too.

Hence, I’ve been posting daily illustrations on social media and I created her personal blog with free educational/inspirational contents, receiving hundreds of views and daily positive feedback. But what’s motivating me the most are some special heartwarming ‘Thank You’ messages I got from persons who have been living delicate moments and difficult situations, saying that my character just helped them lighten their days with a smile. Well, there are no words to express how I feel about this. I was creating art, in my little corner of the world, trying to make the best of my social isolation, and I ended up making a difference for some others, even if only for the time of a chuckle.

As a personal journey, Flora is about exploring everyday

She looks at her life in a new perspective, observing ordinary objects with a curious eye, discovering connections, finding Beauty in the little things, getting motivated and inspired even when the whole world is upside down.

After collecting materials to create activity sheets for kids, I recently made a series of Worksheets for Seniors, and that’s what brings me here. It’s a packet designed to encourage positive thoughts and memories, keeping them busy, with a little fun too!
