A scientist/nurse by trade, an artist/freedom fighter by birth

Marika Rosenthal Delan is a scientist/nurse by trade and an artist/freedom fighter by birth who once choreographed her little brother and his friends in a rousing rendition of Devo’s Whip It as performed by Alvin and the Chipmunks when she was only 9. Since being sidelined from nursing by spine surgeries she finds her zen in her children, music, and words of all kinds. She works with her husband, Peter serving the community through their non-profit, Tree of Life United Ministries. Her essays have been featured on Jennifer Pastiloff’s The Manifest-Station, Elephant Journal, and The Huffington Post. You can also find her work in the newly released anthology edited by Amy Ferris, Shades of Blue, Writers on Depression, Suicide, and Feeling Blue
