Two weeks after I sent in my application (to Music for Healing and Transition Program, Inc), an acceptance letter arrived along with an award for a partial scholarship granted for musical knowledge and experience.
This all felt right.
Rather miraculously my Nurse Practitioner friend, Sue Casler, with whom I played old time music, had heard of MHTP and ended up joining me for the certification process.
Spirited discussions as we drove back and forth to intense weekend modules added depth to our experience. Sue knew how to interpret the scientific and medical aspects of our training. This was not easy material.
Sue's presence was a gift. And unexpected. Do I dare call her an angel?
What do you think?
