I can't stop looking at this stunning image of my sister, JoLai. I actually altered it to look like a painting using (of course) an app on my iPhone. Because I kind of thought it looked like a work of art.
Here's the original picture, which was already artistic on its own, right?
Anyways. Doesn't she look like some kind of chic, hippie goddess?
Haven't y'all heard about the goddess Afro-dite? Mmm hmmm. She's the goddess of love, natural hair, and not giving a damn about greys coming in.
Honestly? I write this blog to share the human aspects of medicine + teaching + work/life balance with others and myself -- and to honor the public hospital and her patients--but never at the expense of patient privacy or dignity.
Thanks for stopping by! :)
