"It's hard convincing yourself that where you are at the moment is your home, and it's not always where your heart is. Sometimes I win and sometimes not."
-- Jonathan Carroll

Inescapable. At some point, life orders us to our parents’ seat at the head of the table and suddenly we’re responsible for “feeding” them after a lifetime of vice versa. It is a moving and genuinely disconcerting moment, one you can’t fully bring into focus until later.

If we can’t love, then at least rage means we’re still here— in the fight, fists up and swinging, visible and ornery, not yet willing to let the blanket of silence be pulled over our heads for good.

No matter what you are there for, hospitals humble a person. Without saying a word they tell you you’re older, more fragile, susceptible to things you never imagined possible. You can assume someone died in the bed you occupy. Your backless nightgown covered people who had no hope of ever leaving this final land of long corridors and the small hissing sounds of thick shoes and cart wheels. A day there is waiting for meals and test results. The only thing you can be sure of is there will be old magazines on the table at the end of the corridor. You try to remember where you were on the outside when you read that same magazine three months ago. It makes you inordinately happy to remember it was at a friend’s house or the barbershop.
