Grainy videos

This tree at the Clinic can be seen from one end of the large lobby area, on the wall of a wide walkway.  It is a moving image that changes for seasons, projected from the ceiling and about eight feet tall.  The video is grainy when loaded to Blogger, full page is worse.  Too bad - looks great on my tablet!  My favorite is the winter tree.  Why such a simple distraction fascinated me is easy - I don't get out much.

This is a close up of the detail, the autumn tree.
In an adjoining sitting area, they have images of fish projected.
Carole's doc appt. went as planned and they are watching her closely for congestive heart failure which is the greatest danger during the wait time before surgery.  Remember when I rammed the pavement bump and almost flipped her out of the wheelchair?  Mark was pushing her through the snow and when he hit the threshold of the doc's door - deja vu.  After wetting our pants from laughing, he had to wheel her backwards to get over that obstacle.
To Jean Bee (no-reply) - that pincushion was purchased.
To sheravery - you can purchase all Threads of Gold charts including Abe at Em-Lis website.  Abe is not shown but you can call or email to order.  Did Jingle Bird arrive safely?
Enjoy your weekend!!
Thanks for visiting.

That tree video is very interesting! I'm sure an architect or designer thought of that as a relaxation tool!?
I hope your sister continues to hold her own until the surgery, provided one of you doesn't spill her out somewhere! haha!

How soothing is that tree and the fish projection in a clinic. I would love that!
Poor Carole, she may have to hope for survival from you and Mark before any medical condition she has! LOL

The first thought I had when seeing the tree and the fish was the same as Barbi's above... how soothing. Too bad they weren't in every clinic and hospital, where people need a distraction from their stress.
Glad Carole remained in her chair in spite of you and your husband's attempts to toss her!! ;) Continued prayers for her.... Have a nice weekend.

Hi, Marly,
I guess technology is really amazing these days...but I am old fashioned and would prefer an original work of art...oh, well. Carole must be a really good sport to laugh at being dumped out of her wheelchair! I'm sure her sense of humor will help her heal. Sending happy thoughts your way...

Lida said...

Sweet! Thanks, hugs

Barb said...

That tree was very interesting! Thoughts and prayers are still with you and your family.

Technology is amazing now days.. I think I could sit for a long time and enjoy the movement and changing of the tree.. I don't get out much either.. haha ! The fish would do it for me too.
Your story about the adventures of Carole, Mark and Marly sounds like a "I Love Lucy" show.. I tell you, Carole is one strong woman to be dealing with all of the ups and downs she's been through. I certainly do pray she'll be fine until and after the next surgery.
Blessings to all of you. I hope your weekend will be enjoyable.
Hugs, Charlotte in Virginia

Love them both! They are relaxing and soothing to the soul--I am sure that is their purpose! Hopefully they have scheduled more appointments for her before surgery, so they CAN watch her closely! Speaking of watching... watch out for those bumps everywhere! Hugs!

I can see how the tree would be calming to sit and watch. Very beautiful too. The fish are also cool. I will continue prayers for Carole. All the best for her health and surgery.

I can see why the tree would be calming. I've encountered a few of those bumps with my mom in the wheelchair too.

Those are lovely - so much better than the forest wallpaper that was all the rage when I was on chemo. I worked as an aid to a gal with MS when I was in college. It's always best to back a wheelchair over bumps and steps, not only for the safety of the occupant, but for your back and shoulders as well. Never forget - there are two dogs in this fight, and you can't do her any good if you've gone down. Be good to you!

I am such a jerk! I thought I had sent a GIANT thank you already. Sieve brain, I guess. Yes, Jingle Bird arrived in all 'her' glory. I love it so much, and am so grateful for your kind generosity. THANK YOU!

I can envision poor Carole going airborne. Funny story. She obviously has a good sense of humor (must run in the family). My continued thoughts and prayers for her speedy recovery.

Again, my sincerest thanks for your kindness.
