My friend Suzanne Weinberg writes, “I think with my animal loves, there is just an automatic softening – and that contains all of what you write about: vulnerability, nakedness, etc. and more — presence, love, generosity, simplicity.”
I have not written about Nelson much lately. But the last couple visits have been very good. He is opening to me again. He stays with me and is his inquisitive, sweet old self. Even with big flies bothering him, he stays calm and connected. He still does not want to do any of the movement games that we were playing a few months ago and I am good with that. He will tell me when it is time. What I want more than anything is that sweetness, the presence, love, generosity and simplicity that Suzanne speaks of.
