Welcome to The Big Red Links!
Links are nice. They’re better when you string them together into chains…
In addition to the twenty stories shown here, each section header is also a button. It takes you to a permanent archive of all the links to date from that section.
I offer three archives, Nursing, Mental Health, and Art/Fun: one for each sections of The Big Red Links.
I eagerly invite you to:
1) Share everything you find here,
2) Comment here: otherwise I get lonely!
3) Submit material. Use The Big Red Links to share, advertise and publicize! Contact me however you like: I list contact options at the bottom of the INTRO & Contact Info page.

What I Learned @ My Own Assertiveness in a Silly Improv Game: Death in One Minute – I do a fair amount of acting at work. Nothing dishonest: honestly I lack the talent, and I don’t favor deceit for ethical and [practical reasons. I simply play a given role when it seems useful, a persona that emphasizes some aspect of my personality. There’s a clown, a coach, a parent, a teacher, an authority figure, a tough guy… It all takes practice, and Improv training provides just that. It also helps people find and challenge assumptions holding them back. I’ve offered patients groups medication education for years, in a fully improv format: rather well received!
Exceptional Nurse: Good Things About Being a Nurse with a disability – Things happen, often quite outside of our control. We give the meaning, often entirely within our control. The meanings we assign shape our responses and our future.
