Linda comments, “I stumbled upon the Healing Photo Art Foundation while reading our coworker newsletter at Mercy Hospital St. Louis and instantly knew I wanted to get involved! Nature found me during the darkest days of the pandemic, bringing light and hope to all my senses. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share a little part of myself that might just bring a sigh of peacefulness or a joyful memory to another person who may be feeling uncomfortable, alone at an uncertain time, and vulnerable. Thank you to Elaine Poggi for bringing her vision to life with this beautiful mission to soothe the soul through photo art! Elaine’s international project to encourage the healing properties of nature in hospital rooms throughout the world exemplifies what the pandemic taught us all – that we are forever interconnected.”
