This week's challenge is curves; it was Christine's choice. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Womtig, Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
We were notified that my wife's best friend was in her last hours, so we rushed to the hospital at the University of Michigan. It was approximately a 5-hour ride. We got there just in time to say goodbye, and late that night, after lots of hugs and tears, we made our way back downstairs. There was lots of art displayed in the hallways, and I saw a remarkable exhibit on the wall, and snapped a shot with my phone. (Sorry; I did not bring my DSLR because of the circumstances.) A hospital employee dutifully informed me that they have a policy of not allowing picture taking. That stuck me as an odd rule. I immediately put my phone back in the holster, but this really stunned me. I considered deleting the image, but decided to "bend" the rules and keep what I had already taken, so I could show you thousands of curvy pieces of colored paper. (I can't imagine why the hospital has such a policy, and I'm sure it's one of those goofy rules that had to be created because someone did something stupid or unjust to begin with.) So, for this week's header, I'm showing Anne Mondro’s “The Dragon of Wishes, Hopes and Dreams” which was displayed at the U of M Hospital.
