Poetry and music are a great way to express the way you feel or to document an experience. This video then explores the vocabulary of the pandemic through poetry. Language is a powerful medium that defines so much but here it has been put to music by the very talented Mike Gascoigne (his channel is here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChT6…). The photography has been reproduced and remains copyright protected to the owners credited many of whom submitted their pictures to the renew169 wellbeing lockdown photography competition. To find out about Renew169 and the valuable work they do you can visit their website https://www.renew169.org.uk/. It was great collaborating with all these people.
Life is good! Life is inspirational!
Why? What? How?
Ginz and Tonic started life as a year long challenge from June 2013 to June 2014 to write a poem a day to raise awareness of arrhythmias and syncope.
It has since kept going, posting a poem a day covering anything that comes to mind. Additionally, it supports the coaching framework of www.resetparenting.com and also offers workshops in school using poetry to reinvent the wheel of helping children get in touch with different aspects of their development.
Personalised poems are also offered for any occasion or to market your business for a donation to arrhythmia and syncope support group www.beatiteastmidlands.co.uk
This is a free site and asks for nothing in return but if you would like to support the above support group, Beat-It Grantham, then please get in touch.
