Granddad continues to improve and in the process I am learning a new lesson from my parents through their example.  Watching my father take care of his father, listening to him listen to him, watching him watch him, a subtle timing to the adjustment of a telephone to be within reach in a certain way.  The way both my parents anticipate the needs of their parents and the way they fill the interstices of time so patiently, something beautiful and gently spontaneous in a way that can't possibly be fully within their control.  Where do we learn the way that we care?
