Old trees just grow stronger

There is so much beauty and tragedy in the progression of life. Some of my favorite patients at the hospital are older folks. At times, the loneliness they endure has been overwhelming and sometimes heartbreaking, and yet in a most amazing way, I've gained and learned so much here.

Sure as the march of days, we are all heading towards old age and often it comes with a new innocence and a return to a heart that once was the ground of toddlers and yet, it does not prove they are in any fashion, untenable.

I'd like to think, if I see old age, that someone takes the time to say "hello in there" to me.
