Adagio has been working the last couple months to stay balanced. An important and much loved member made the final transition early this morning. Hospice care was constant and their loving expertise appreciated. Our nurse is a gem.

Yesterday a new family member joined us. We begin again juggling likes, dislikes and needs.

When an element is added to or removed from a mobile, every element is effected as the balance changes. Irene has been bobbing for a week but today she hangs quietly, eyes askew. For an inanimate, glass mobile she is wise.

      The rain to the wind said,
      “You push and I’ll pelt.”
      They so smote the garden bed
      That the flowers actually knelt,
      And lay lodged—though
            not dead.
      I know how the flowers felt.
