Celebrating a Year

October 1, 2010

with 8 comments

Like a mirage, relief beckons just ahead, but it’s not to be. So I run around like a dyslexic firefighter throwing buckets of water in all the wrong places, trying to reclaim the small island of OK that we used to occupy. I don’t see a way back to who she was, or even to the recent unreal but predictable round-about of old stories heard too many times. There is nothing I can do, but I still try. And hope there might be some reversible explanation for this.

    • Thanks. It’s hard to deal with an aging parent and so sad. The picture is from a column of glass cubes near my house, always a source of new and wonderful images.

  4. An aging elder. So very sad … It’s hard to remember how they were and compair them to now. Heart aches.

    Love the photo and the image of a dyslexic firefigher…have felt that way at time too…

    Hang in there …

    • A friend commented that this story is so similar in all cases. I keep hoping for improvement or at least a cheery interlude.
