Fall on us
Progress on this piece has been slow but hands free/brain free time is scarce. I take it when I can.
It's been an emotionally and physically exhausting week. The other day I took Jim's wheelchair and left it just inside the vestibule of the Catholic church that's so close we can hear the bell. The door was open, no one was around. I just wheeled it in and left it.
I submitted a short story to a literary journal and have since found out that I have a better chance of getting into Harvard! Hilarious.
And there's nothing like being greeted in the early morning hours by a smiling face who knows you and challenges you to bring your A game to his day.
This too will be changing. Jake has changed jobs and will soon get home in time to have some Charlie time all to himself. A good thing for both of them.
