On Aging

A geriatric dorm.

What had been fueled by academic interest in sacramental aging, death and dying took on wrinkled faces and arthritic hands. I made friends - lots of friends.

They kept dying.

Here are some resources from The Threadbare Couch on caring for the aging, and aging well.

I still miss my friends.
