From the first neurosurgeon's appointment at the UW I saw this painting. It always makes me smile. I remember thinking of it when I went in for the first surgery, I had walked past it after the surgery prep meeting. I focused on it when I was in recovery. When I was released, I admired it as Danny wheeled me to the car, and Jess Abu Dhabi carried all of the goodies that my friends and family brought me (thank you, thank you, thank you!). Now, every time I head to my speech therapist's office I spend a few minutes along the way looking it. I like to think that someday that'll be Danny and me.

According to the artist, the characters in the painting are not real people, they're bits and pieces of bodies and faces from his mind. It's a fictional event in the painting. I just read the side note yesterday, and I was surprised. I thought it was a real photo, or at least a painting of a photo or moment in time.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this painting with everyone because it gives me so much joy. Every time I see this painting I get the warm fuzzies, and I can't help but smile.
