Robyn Michele Levy Presents “Chasing Hope Through Art & Humour” April 14, 2015 in Medicine Hat, Alberta
Physically I arrived home last week, but emotionally I haven’t landed yet. I’m still there — in the Tuscon desert — my heart open with gratitude for this tender, brave community finding me, inviting me. Thank you APDA Arizona!
Robyn Michele Levy is a Keynote Speaker at #Parkinson’s Optimism Summit in Tuscon, Arizona March 14, 2015
Lately, I’ve been too busy to blog. But now that my TO DO LISTS are almost all done, I can share some exciting news. On Saturday, March 14th I will be a Keynote Speaker at the Power Over Parkinson’s – Optimism Summit — organized by the Arizona Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association. The Optimism Summit takes place at Tuscon’s beautiful Westward Look Resort & Spa. It starts 9:30 Saturday morning and continues through Sunday afternoon. If you plan on attending, I hope you introduce yourself to me. Just not during nap time. There’s still time to register.
Last week I visited my friend Cyndee’s blog. Instead of making New Year resolutions, she selected one word — “DO” — to guide her professionally and personally throughout 2015. Inspired, this got me thinking about which word I’d choose. Reflecting on recent events in my neurodegenarating life, it was a no-brainer: the word “GO”. Here’s why: I GO swimming! (my favourite exercise I quit 7 years ago when I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and breast cancer).
Parkinson’s Breakthrough! Cougar Trial Finder Extracts Dopamine from Disgraced Dalhousie Dental Students
OK, it was just a dream — but if you ask me, those misogynistic dentistry students at Dalhousie University have way too much dopamine flowing in their brains. I say round ‘em up, shave their heads, and extract some of those surplus neurotransmitters for people with Parkinson’s disease.
