What can we do to find meaning in our own suffering and the suffering of the world? K & F ask Dr. Rogério Pinto this low-key question during a morning call in quarantine. In his delightful Brazilian/Queens accent, Rogério shares a tribute to New York and describes his process of “psychological excavation” through which he has found peace and meaning from a childhood trauma through art. He provides encouragement that everyone has the ability for this kind of healing work.
Rogério's play, Marília, is available online through the University of Michigan: https://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/handle/2027.42/153525
