Welcome to Fridays Inspiration post to get you set for the weekend and the week ahead. CourageDon’t allow what happened in the past to stop you from moving forward, things can change, situations can change, you can change. Change your mind, decide what you do want rather than focusing on what you don’t want. You have to have courage, once you decide what it is that courage, determination and focus that will keep you going, alongside you taking a stand. It is not going to come over night, it is showing up for yourself each and every day until you achieve what you set out to do. You are not alone, each day millions of people around the world have decided that they too will take a step into living their best life and living with courage, Are you ready?The best way to utilize these weekly 'Friday Shorts' is to spend time meditating on the words and allowing them to permeate your inner consciousness.Think about the changes you would like in your own life and the step or steps you would like to take.

Welcome to the Episode 102 of the Realityarts Podcast and the Arts and Wellness Wednesdays.On Wednesdays we focus on the Arts and how it can impact our health and well-being, today I share an interview that I did on Urban Jazz Radio on the Money Mob Show with host Paul Muhammad.  In the interview I spoke about the what I am doing in the arts as well as out in my garden, which provides me with a therapeutic haven.  It is hard work but the visual rewards and the edible ones that you get when you grow your own is priceless.  I have been growing a number of things that I then use in my art studio, such as the wood I harvest to use in Mixed media pieces, the fibers - namely sea island Cotton and banana fibers.  You can join me on my Creative Gardener YouTube Channel and see what I have been up to.I mention quite a few  organisations that you can find out more information about - Slow Foods Barbados , Walkers Nature Reserve, AgrofestCrop Over Events, AnimeKon Expo, ECCO - Barbados Sea Island Cotton, Artist Sheena RoseFor information on arts events in Barbados check out the Barbados Visual Arts event online Magazine Published by Corrie Scott.You can also find me in other places on social media:YouTube Instagram Pinterest Website  Blog Twitter Facebook

Welcome to Episode 99 of the podcast.  Today on Arts and Wellness Wednesday I will be talking about Dementia and recognizing the signs and symptoms and the use of creativity to help support those living with the disease and those who are caring for those living with the disease.It follows on from my talk about the work I have done in the arts and health field in last weeks podcast, number 96 which you can listen to.I have found that the arts can make a big impact on those who are living with Dementia and their carers and where ever you can put in place activities  it is vital.I have written about my experience being a carer and working through the maze of Dementia and Care on my blog and provided information and tips about some of the things that you can do.  The services available will vary depending on where you live and funding  The majority of carers have experienced the lack of funding for their loved ones, but there are resources that you can access and it is important that you find out as much as you can about the disease and what is available.In the UK you can access Age UK and Alzheimer's Society.In Barbados you can contact the Barbados Alzheimer's Association (BAA) - think about making a donation to the work that they do..  They offer regular training, keeping you updated and informed about the disease and resources available (Participation Program), hold yearly seminars with speakers coming in from all around the Caribbean and further afield and share a lot of important and relevant information, and the work is done by volunteers so they do need your support.   You can give them a call on:  Tel:  246-418-0741 or 824-3365 and see how you can help them further their work.On Arts and Wellness Wednesdays I cover the way that art can impact on our health and well-being and encourage you to find a way to incorporate Art in what ever form you choose into your regular daily practice, so you can come to my YouTube channel and see art videos and tutorials, and be inspired and encouraged.If you would like to get more creative but not sure of what to do sign up for two free 30 minute sessions where you can talk about the things that matter or you want to work through creatively.  More information HEREPlease consider sharing this information, dementia effects the whole community and we need to be the bridge of support for those who are directly dealing with the disease, and look at the range of creative resources that we can use.To find out more about the work that I share on the variety of platforms click on one of the links below.YouTube    Instagram    Pinterest    Website     Blog    Twitter     Facebook
