you know how hospitals have this long tradition of taking a patient being released from the hospital to their car at the curb side in a wheel chair?

i had occasion to walk through the area where those staff members leave the wheel chair after the patient leaves and saw these balloons still tied to the back of one of the wheel chairs.

“who leaves their balloons behind?”, was the question that popped into my mind as i snapped this shot. then, i had a conversation with myself in my mind exploring the possibilities. “a person who is dying. or, a person who has a cat at home and they didn’t want the cat to play with the balloon. no, that’s not it. it has to be someone who is dying. or, it could be a young couple and they just had a baby and they were so excited they forgot about the balloons! yes, that’s it! no, that’s like when my parents used to tell me that the ambulance i saw was a woman having a baby. it’s a person who is dying.”
