When Mother and I decided to co-author a book together, we were looking for a crack in the isolating wall of COVID—something fun we might do together. We had no idea we would be starting a conversation with so many people about how we might help each other through the difficult years of aging. Like a poem, the book is taking unexpected turns as it creates a life of its own.
‘I Just Want to See the Sky’
Although it is raining, I open the door
and step into the chilly air of April
to feel the closeness of a sky
heavy with spring’s moisture.
Oblivious to the rain, I am lost
in a downpour of emotions,
my face turned upward by an email
from a woman writing about her mother
who, now confined to a wheel chair,
sees only the stark white of a ceiling
as she repeats her wish on every call
to a daughter living so many miles away.
From briefcase to pen, paper and camera, one woman's journey to influence
how we care for the environment, our seniors, each other.
