By the way, I'm remiss for not reading your posts. I had to stop Substack emails coming to my inbox as it was overwhelming. Today I decided to look for your posts, and I'm glad I did. I'll come looking more often. Keep writing!

What a beautiful piece, and beautifully written. It’s timely for me as my siblings and I are watching my mother fade. A vibrant, independent woman having to rely on her children, and particularly my brother, who has moved from Boston to live with her during this time. You are right. We need to give her the space to be who she is to the very end.
