Beautiful. Heart opening. Profound.
This is the poetry of Shane Koyczan. You might remember him from the Vancouver 2010 Olympics opening ceremony. His is one of the performances I remember most from those memorable couple of weeks, and that’s saying a lot because a lot happened over that short time–including me getting to carry the Olympic torch, volunteer as part of the medical team at the athletes village, and seeing some of my figure skating heroes in person!
A patient of mine recently reminded me of Shane Koyczan because he was taking his family to see Shane perform in person. They enjoyed it immensely, not a surprise! I decided to check out more of Shane’s work online and I could spend hours watching his YouTube posts.
But back to the reason for this post. If you or someone you know suffers from depression or even just needs a bit of a lift (or a lot of a lift), check this out and share it.
