A Sad Time


We're experiencing a rough patch right now. WP's mother and my dear friend Alice is fading fast. It seems as if it happened overnight. Her final hour will soon be upon us.

Hospice is in, as Alice has chosen to die at home and wishes no resuscitation. WP is on his way home from a business trip to Las Vegas and his daughter is flying in early tomorrow morning from San Francisco.

I will be back when I can.

Oh heart, if one should say to you that the soul perishes like the body, answer that the flower withers, but the seed remains.
~Kahlil Gibran
