6 comments on “A Leaf / A Life

  1. I’ve visited nursing homes, and my mother was in one for about one week before she died. A very apt description.

  2. Thank you gentlemen.

    I hope that if the time should ever come in which I would require that level of care, that by then, I have amassed the type of funds so that I can do so in my own home. I have never left a nursing home feeling hopeful for the person living (no residing because I can’t call it “living”), there.

  3. I really like the analogy used here, it works quite well, and going forward I may think about a leaf metaphorically, as you’ve poeticized here. Really nicely done. Thanks

  4. Really good one, Rai. Of course you don’t have to be in a nursing home to feel used up by life.Most of us feel like that at times- but then that’s why these words can land so hard.

So? What do you think?
