Priceless. I love the juxtaposition of new life overshadowing a reconstruction. Ah, life ...
Thanks so much, Glenn. This scene really got to me. sp
You could do a whole blog of just billboards and what's under them. Very interesting - and touching.
Hi Ellen, Thanks for looking in, love, sussah
Hi Sussah,I love the image. I'm curious though. Is "Touro" some kind of company? Or non-profit? I only wonder because in Japan and Canada nobody pays for having babies.
"... nobody pays for having babies ..."? Dude. Why aren't those countries overrun with rug rats? Are or they, and I just don't know about it?I'll leave it to sussah to explain the "concept" of "Touro" to you ;-)
Hi Rick, Touro is a hospital, a local medical network, and as Glenn says, a concept. People say the phrase "running on fumes"... I believe you could say we are living on concepts. But the actual answer about what Touro is can be found here. I am a Children's Hospital volunteer, and my specialty is neonatal intensive care. But babies don't come for free in the U.S. I am already on record to be in agreement with the Canadian view about guns, and we could learn from Canada in health care too. President Obama has moved our country a couple steps toward health care reform, but truly too much of everyone's income goes to pay for insurance premiums, doctor visits, Rxs, etc. And I spent a good part of today in the dentists chair getting the first stage of a crown, so I wish the government would have paid for that, while they're at it. thanks for writing! and watch out for those bad moods, sp And hi Glenn, Funny, the thought of free rug-rats. sp
Whew! I was afraid from your title that the picture depicted fledgling pelican doused in oil, and didn't know if I could look at.Rick, the matter of who pays for babies (and everything else having to do with health care) in the U.S. comprise multiple fields of study.
Dear K, Sorry about the misleading title... it was supposed to be like my earlier one called "words in the environment". This babies post could have gone as untitled! Thought you might be intrigued by the direction the conversation went. thanks, sp
