Life

one friend in labor:  life on the way
one friend in ICU:  a broken neck, leg, and collapsed lung
one friend in hospice:  death’s shadow looms large

life is a fragile veil of being; my heart is full and tender; a day passes…

A healthy baby girl wrapped in joy
Fingers can wiggle despite a broken neck
A dying woman giggles with her long time friend
