Creative Writing with Bailey
Springhouse residents in Allen House and Assisted Living at Ledgemont have their creative juices flowing thanks to two new Expressive Therapy groups lead by intern, Bailey McCombs. A masters-level student attending Lesley University’s Expressive Arts Therapy and Mental Health Counseling program, Bailey’s work at Springhouse has primarily focused on creative writing, specifically poetry. Working both individually and in small groups, residents are given a prompt or image to spark their inspiration. Bailey is currently working on publishing a collection of works by Springhouse residents created throughout the course of her internship. Stay tuned for more details! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this recent poem, spontaneously authored by Joan M.
We created something by being here.
Even though some of us are tired,
We created something just by being here.
I am home.
