EP #24: Part 1 -- Pediatric psychiatric nurse practioner blends science and art to refill her well
In part 1 of this 2-part series, podcaster Tracy Crow, an author, writing coach, and Marine Corps veteran, interviews Amanda Reilly Sayer, a pediatric psychiatric nurse practitioner by day, to discover how and why she turns to painting, poetry, and photography. "It's important to me," she says, "to think about how I can inspire or offer gifts to other people...sharing the love, paying it forward." In a frank discussion about emotional pain and healing, Amanda says grief and emotional pain can be transformed through creativity. The act of transforming, itself, is an act of creation, she explains. "Where are your wellsprings?" she asks herself and patients.
For more about Amanda's paintings, poetry, and photography, visit her blog, Painting Poetry in Motion.
