Today is Madeline’s birthday! God has placed beautiful people in my life, but none are like Madeline. Beautiful in so many ways. Her relationship with her family and friends is perfect. There is no one I applaud more for being completely independent and precious to everyone around her. She’s the most important person to me and I’m so sad I couldn’t celebrate your birthday with you! But I’m so blessed to have you in my life, and you deserve the absolute best birthday :) Love you, Mad!
The stalks of these flowers are already dried up, but their blossoms are preserved and kept fresh by the medical infusion bags. The life-span of every living creature is limited. The infusion bags stand for the progress in medicine and the prolongation of human life. They somehow carry an ambivalent message as they refer to both death and life the same time. To preserve the beauty of the flowers artifically with the help of the infusion bags points out man’s inclination to repress the fact that he has to die and to postpone death.
