Last Night Walk
My stepfather is stronger and my mother is well again. The holidays were happy - family, togetherness. I fly home tomorrow.
Now, a last walk around the Village. It's warm, wet from a long rain. Once again, the quiet of the night is soothing. I feel a sense of timelessness. I think good things can happen: that the world will find peace, that people will chose kindness, and that aging parents can somehow live happily ever after.
