At one of our recent workshops, we used our journeys as a focus. Cate and I made a sort of map combining pictures and words of our journey from our mugs of tea at the Friends Foundation office in Millerfield Place to the first floor library.
A 13 year old patient who arrived from ward 1 by wheelchair chose to write a poem about his journey instead.
A couple of tips - for the poem, the patient thought hard about the verbs he used for movement - scoot, swirl, scamper. And he thought about animals and how they move. For our map, Cate and I thought about senses - sights, sounds and smells.
