Back In the Nest

The mother of one of my best friends died this week. So I'm up in NYS near home and staying with my parents after the memorial service. My parents are fine. This is cool. As I type this, my mother sits reading in the living room. My father sits at the kitchen table opening the day's mail with a knife.

Today, Mom went to buy the plants she puts out around the house every spring that are just glorious. Dad went to drive for Avis; moving cars from one airport to another from morning 'til evening.

There's a rhythm to all this that moves to the beat of a mash-up of "simple gifts" and "amazing grace." It's not lost on me. Honest.
