Whimsical Windows - The soothing views


Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors returns and although we often look at portals from the inside, today I look from the inside out. Here is looking outside from the lobby of the Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital in Derby CT. We visited the center yesterday after the 5th Annual 5K Walk/Run to benefit the center where Patti hosted a walking team.

This view is what the patient receiving chemo sees a view of a waterfall and plantings from the nearly floor-to-ceiling windows in the treatment wing to the right. When Patti received her chemo treatments in 2011, not only was the staff most caring...perhaps soothing views like this helped the healing process as she is cancer free these days :)

Oh, that is indeed a very soothing view! How wonderful that Patti has passed that difficult stage, and has moved on to organizing fundraisers for the center - I'm sure that for patients there, seeing her so happy and active is just as soothing as this waterfall :)
