Hello Journal & Friends,
Last June I told you about The Triplets, and posted photos HERE. A Mama deer had triplets right outside the hospital where Jim works in Ashland, Oregon.
There is a lot of dense shrubbery, trees and a water source, so she moved right in, obviously feeling safe. The admininstration immediately put out the word: protect her, and leave her alone. It was wonderful, and patients enjoyed getting glimpses of her and The Triplets outside their windows. Unfortunately, one little fawn didn't make it, so now they are The Twins.
The 2 babies grew, and Mama led them off into the nearby hills. Last seen, Jim said they looked strong and healthy. Yay!
Jim is excited that he was invited to submit some of his photography to be shown in the hospital gallery, and to also be used in the Patient Choice Gallery, where they get to pick which art hangs on the walls of their room during their stay. It's a program designed to make patients feel cared for body, spirit and soul. Nice, yes?
Here are The Twins, on gallery wrapped canvas. It makes me smile to see MyGuy feeling encouraged about his photography. To have a passion and pursue it... that's what we all need on this journey to better health.
I hope you like these cuties as much as I do (can click to enlarge).
Enjoy the Journey,
