Starting to sense i need to let go

Nursing home resident
i take solace in trying my best.


Starting to sense i need to let go.

i asked the 90-year old, like i always do when we visit, “Are you afraid?”

Carrying a sense of obligation to help him articulate that he’s ok with his situation, even as it deteriorates.

Maybe i’ve tried long enough and hard enough.

Maybe next visit i don’t even mention it or concern myself with it.

It’s worth a try.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
