The following article, Cause for alarm: Antipsychotic drugs for nursing home patients contends that we are over medicating our nursing home patients to keep them quiet and manageable. I have news. We never outgrow our need to be creatively engaged through our hands. What a waste we create of our lives when we deprive ourselves and others of the fulfillment that comes from creative work expressed through our hands. As I have been engaged today in computer based work, rather than in the wood shop, I feel disoriented and slightly depressed. But fortunately I know how to fix that. I go to the shop and make something.
Go ahead, make your day, make, fix and create.
