Health care is a right, not a privelege" reads a sign a woman holds up in a photo illustrating, "Ourselves, Growing Older" - as everyone in The United States ages, we as older people know everyone needs health care. (There are ways to extend health knowledge, through classes offered free to the public like "Pebbles in the Pond" a class in psychoeducation suitable for anyone in the community.) My photo shows the art at the new steam plant at Tacoma General Hospital. Above the relief the name reads AMPERE. Along the building side are names of people responsible for discoveries and inventions that are in fact visible through windows into the working steam plant. I think the choice of some of the art is motivated by a favorite sculpture at the same hospital, "The Second Touch", by Larry Anderson, which shows a bird rescued by a girl. The statues is fluid and beautiful, yet it conveys the visceral strength of effort as the girl bends forward with the injured bird in her hand.

My email connects to the Obama for Change Group and their health care statements. I admire the statue " The Second Touch" and believe art matters in health care and in science in general.

Insert movie times and more without leaving Hotmail®. See how.

Three events so far to recognize the poetry anthology In Tahoma's Shadow, poets from Tacoma - one publication celebration with copies distribution and two readings on the last two Thursdays in May. One reading at King's Books, one reading at Tacoma Public Library. Twenty Poets, Forty Poems. All in lovely evening weather.
