We’re in a bungalow now, a house with a workshop and a big front porch and patio and two off-street parking spaces. Best compound since Vashon Island!

“Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.”

Thanks Steve, for that quote and its enduring importance for me during the past 3 years of my life.

Mom and Alzheimer’s and Falling Down

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Mom is falling down.  She hasn’t broken any bones yet but she’s smacked her head on the concrete, tripped over rugs and slipped in the bathtub.  Hospice volunteers are coming once a week, they are the eyes on her world, with thanks.
