Summer within.





Our first difficult night. It's now four thirty and he's finally fallen asleep .

The look on his face seems to say " In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer ".

  13. I'm sorry for the bad night. Wilf has managed a lot of lovely summer days he was told he would not have. Must be a special PON gift to do that. I hope there are more of those.

  20. As Kim at Golden Pines said, we here in Virginia are holding you all in our hearts.

    “Dogs are our link to paradise.
    They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
    To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace."
    - Milan Kundera

    Here's to sitting on a hillside with Wilf. Forever.

    ARoo, Stuart

  33. Heartbreaking news. Our prayers continue to be with our brave,loving boy. Sometimes we must learn to recognize a different summer.
    Was his rough night due to his physical discomfort or was he distressed at his own confusion? I care for my mother who has end stage Alzheimers. She is completely confused, doesn't know who she is and doesn't recognize herself in the mirror. She cannot swallow, walk or control her own bodily functions. But for all of the things she is not, what she is is happy. She'll babble merrily with a lamp and share big belly laughs with the water pitcher. She is awake at night and laughs chatters and sings throughout the night, finally falling into sleep about 4AM. Each day, another part of my soul goes anoxic and I wither a bit more. But not mum. Her physician has said he never saw a happier case. I hope that dear Will finds his summer, lush with green grass, rolling hills and sunny days..And I hope that, in his summer, you can find your own comfort.
