Today, for what feels like the millionth time, I had an appointment at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead. If you’re a longtime follower, you’ll know why, so I won’t go into it now save to say that I have chronic health issues which necessitates this.
Usually, I only see art in the main corridors in frames, small but beautiful pieces that cheer you or make you think. And I love seeing them each time. They make me think of things other than why I’m there and in so doing, some of the stress I’m feeling lifts a little.
This time, I was on the 1st floor, heading to one of the clinics (beautifully designed and easy to find, by the way) and came across this beauty!
A whole wall mural – I couldn’t find an artist’s name – decorating the exit. How glorious! My appointment went well, but if it hadn’t, the sight of this alone would have cheered my spirits.
Maybe one day I’ll have the privilege of contributing such an impactful piece that makes someone in ill health happy.
