  1. Days end.

    Saturday....first day of the work week here; Sometimes I can equate Saturday here to a really long weekend frat party.....people barely move on the day after the "weekend", if you want to call half of Thursday and Friday a weekend.

    i greeted him cordially, and later whispered in his ear that I thought it took guts. And it was the right thing to do. He was visibly moved. It was a kind of closure.

    A long time ago, a friend who was an Admittance Coordinator at a nursing home told me this story she always used when talking to the adult children of a parent when they found out how much the nursing home was going to cost a month...
