I’ve been scarce in these parts and am just popping in to to say a quick hello. My elderly friend, R, is in the hospital. He’s not doing well and is facing some tough decisions. I’m right there with him, facing tough lessons of my own, namely those same old questions about inserting myself in his life – how much and how far? I’m starting to think this must’ve been a difficult lesson for me in previous lives since I’m getting so many opportunities to master it this time around! Yeehaw.
Anyway, didn’t stop by to be a downer but to share the little epiphany I experienced today while visiting R in the hospital:
As I sat at the foot of R’s bed, I realized if I closed my eyes I could easily imagine it was Wildebeest going on and on and on…..
There’s a reason people say that the more things change, the more they stay the same; they say it because it’s true.
