What do you bring someone who is in hospital for a long time, other than flowers? Food is not allowed. Novels can be challenging to read when you're pumped with drugs and navigating pain. In the works, is a "coffee table" type book, filled with stories and pictures of people who accomplished great things while ill or bed-ridden, beautiful renderings of the human body and its great capacity, as well as room to personally document the hospital experience. It's funny, beautiful and tender gift for people in hospital. Easy to flip through, easy on the eyes and filled with the quiet beauty and lonely ache that is lying in a hospital bed.
