There is nothing more precious than life itself. For that we all should be most thankful.

This pillow is given to all survivors of open heart surgery at Arizona Heart Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona USA.

For the record:
The wispy streaks made of light above the heart are intended to represent the delicate nature of human existence.

The entire image was created using a photographic technique called light painting.

Not sure what the white wisps are or what they represent. The signed heart is a good idea and subject, although it's a little dark. Like so many images in this challenge, it likely holds more emotional value with the photographer, but it's a good shot.

I like the vapor flowing around the heart, as life on earth is but a vapor in the window of forever.

bad points the fuzzy mess at the top, what is it?
Good points fairly iconic representation.
Overall Score 2

I can't figure out the white "ghost lines" in the upper left corner. I find it distracting. Good subject.

I sense a big story behind this image and I look forward to reading your comments to find out what it is...the wafting smoke (or steam) is a bit puzzling

And a wonderful gift it is. But what is that white chalky stuff across the top? An 8

I thought that this would be a good thing to be thankful for/enter in this challenge.. but couldn't think of a way to depict it - just one question.. what's the wispy stuff at the top supposed to be?
