The Power of Art to Heal – O’Henry’s Last Leaf

Much has been written about the power of art to heal.

O’Henry wrote a short story titled The Last Leaf.  Although expressed literally, the story symbolically alludes to art’s energy.

The following clip [beginning at minute 23:00] is of the old movie O’Henry’s Full House, which includes a cinematic rendering of that story.
