"The Endless Bench"


This sculpture by artist Lea Vivot was installed in front of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children on University Ave in 1984 and was donated to the hospital in memory of the artist's son. The bench is engraved with 476 messages of love, hope and inspiration and seems to be quite suitable for Mother's Day!
I am off to visit my mother - enjoy the day!
