I was struggling to find the right picture for a Christmas greeting. This picture was actually given to me today by a patient’s daughter. I liked it so much that I asked her if she would let me post it as a greeting card. K, generously agreed. Thank you K!
As I have shared, I work in geriatric psychiatry. Everyday my patients share with me the gift of their wisdom and a beautiful depth of perspective.
In their honor, I wanted to share my gifts to them for the holidays this year.
This year, I gave them the pictures below, laminated.
This picture was taken at sunset, which I thought was a nice metaphor for my patients.
This was based on many of the discussions we have in our group. I am often astounded by the depth and wisdom of my patients. I wish I could record them!
Happy holidays to all!
