Florence Nightingale – the Innovator

Hello, again. This is Florence Nightingale. I am having such a lovely time here, I thought I’d stay on for another round or two of questions. Mr Moderator, what question do you find today? What aspect of your personality prepared you to be an innovator? Hmmm interesting question. Mother always said I plagued her with “too many questions.” So, no doubt, innovation is foreshadowed by a curious mind. Also, I spent many an hour in imaginative play which mimicked the sorts of problems to which my sister and I were exposed, having been raised on a large estate, with the work of daily...

What Would Florence Study Today?

My daughter, who moved  home to finish a master’s degree in healthcare administration, will be taking off to Europe again today. She has lived abroad before, so I know she knows how to navigate in a foreign country. She is also going to meet up with one of her best friends, and they will visit one of our previous exchange students, so I know she’ll be in good company. She’s brushing up on her german, so I know she won’t starve.  Then why am I fretting? If she were married, or in her own place,  I wouldn’t be a part of the getting-ready process. Out of the...
