A long week. On the second day, first of nursing orientation, we were offered 'toys' and told that the research shows that keeping our hands busy helps people listen. Encouraged anyone who wanted to bring in their knitting or clay or whatever, would be welcome to do so, and that all our speakers were aware, and would not take offense.
There were rubics cubes and coloring sheets, crayons, pencils. This saved me from falling asleep many times, and provided some entertainment for those around me. I made a crane and a bunny out of my first day's efforts, and trashed them as I left. These are some of my elaborate doodles this week.
