Monday Muse: Interview with Poet Fred Foote, Part 3

Art- and music-making and contact with nature are two
very powerful modalities for healing. . . .
~ Fred Foote

The concluding segment of my three-part interview with Fred Foote, "Healing with Poetry", posted at TweetSpeak Poetry last week. The poet and physician, who directs the Warrior Poetry Project for veterans of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, discusses the Green Road Project, a healing garden at Walter Reed, and how communities of non-military poets or the public more generally might help our veterans recover from their devastating war experiences.

Also included is Foote's poem "Wife on the ICU" from his collection Medic Against Bomb.
