Susan “Dr. Sue” Horowitz, Ph.D. invites you to a Singing, Shakespearean Virtual Art/Song Tour for Winter 2020 – a challenging time, with loss and uncertainty. We need modern medical science, care, compassion, and the beauty of art, music, and nature. More than ever, we need the hope for spring!

I hope you enjoy my Shakespearean style hat with a white winter feather!

I also hope your enjoy my drawing and original song about a new vaccine and a winter crocus.

Dr. Sue Sings her original song “A New Vaccine… A Winter Crocus”

My virtual background is a beautiful impressionist painting by John Henry Twachtman, American Impressionist.

Here is the original painting, which was kindly sent to me by Diane Maglaque, Director of Street Art Museum Tours. Painting is from The National Gallery of Art, Washington DC. Web: streetartmuseumtours.com

“Winter Harmony” by John Henry Twatchtman, National Gallery of Art, 1890

Below is my drawing of early crocuses in a mix of earth and snow.

The crocus is usually an early Spring flower, but sometimes it blooms when there is still snow on the ground. You may notice that the colors of the crocus (purple, green, and gold) are like those of Mardi Gras – a holiday that arrives as winter turns to spring!

(Scroll down for complete song lyric – and a suprise Hanukkah painting!)

 
 “A Winter Crocus”  
 They all ask me if I’m ready to take a new vaccine
 Going first and going early - not my scene
 Can my frozen hopes have power?
 Doesn’t frost kill every flower?
 How can winter snows turn purple, gold, and green?
 How can winter snows turn purple, gold, and green?
  
 Well I feel a bit unsteady, they all know what I mean
 Got the jitters like I drank too much caffeine 
 So I ask a frosty crocus
 "What’s your secret hocus pocus? 
 How can winter snows turn purple, gold, and green?
 How can winter snows turn purple, gold, and green?"
  
 And that cool courageous crocus says, 
 “I’ll tell you just one thing
 All my roots and leaves still believe in spring
 May my blossoms make you bold
 And cheer you when you're cold 
 May your winter snows turn purple, green, and gold.
 May your winter snows turn purple, green, and gold."

Dr. Sue Daffodils Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Nature & Poetry Positive Entertainment

Hello. This is Dr. Sue (Susan Horowitz, Ph.D,) I live in Manhattan, New York, the epicenter of our current pandemic. I say “current” because, this too shall pass – especially if we take care of our health – physical and mental. It’s March, 2020, early spring – one of my favorite times of year. I’ve been spending lots of time in my apartment. I wanted fresh air and a way to connect to the beauty of nature. Social distancing is important, so I decided to go for a solo walk in a local park – no mass transportation, and no crowds. After a short walk in the park, I came across these beautiful fields of daffodils. (Please scroll down for video). These golden-trumpeted flowers reminded me of the ending lines from one of my favorite poems: “I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, written in the early 19th century. The last line of the poem is: “And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” Wordsworth writes about how, when he is feeling depressed,  (“in vacant or in pensive mood”),  he remembers the daffodils moving in the wind. The memory lifts his spirits and he feels pleasure as he imagines “his heart…dancing with the daffodils.” Many of us are feeling isolated and lonely and bored as we self-isolate to protect our health, and the health of our loved ones and community. This is the wise and generous thing to do. It’s easy to become depressed as the public media and worried friends share frightening statistics and stories – – and interpretations that can lead to personal despair. What can we do? We can take care of our physical health, and by now, we know what to do (social distance, hygiene, etc.) We can take care of our mental and spiritual health. We can manage and limit our exposure to negativity. We can focus on opportunities for growth and learning, on healthy routines, on hobbies, and on beauty. We can enjoy the beauty of nature – either in reality (like my solo walk), in memory (like William Wordsworth’s poem), or virtually (in videos, photographs, and text). I hope you enjoy this video of me and my daffodils! Dr. Sue Shares Uplifting Poem About Daffodils
