Dad Update

This is an addendum to my last essay on Wu Wei. So many folks have asked for an update on how my father's doing. Here's a brief one...

Moving day was a success, though there were some harried moments~~like when he and my brother arrived at the airport (after waking before 5 a.m. and finishing packing) only to find their reservations GONE! And that's two first~class seats, limited in number to begin with, and all the motorized wheelchair accommodations attached to them.  It seems similar to much of this process in that, though it all worked out fine, the suspense was rather intense at times!

Dad continues to settle into the nursing home, with all the many changes taxing body, mind, heart and soul. He's a trooper, though, and we're all absolutely convinced this move was the right one. Even he has expressed no regrets about it.

My whole family, Dad included, continues to receive lessons in wu wei mastery. Sometimes we pass with flying colors. Other times we flunk a pop quiz and are sent back to our books for further study. What a wild ride it's been!

Thanks for all your prayers, good vibes, and concern. Blessed be, ya'll!

I'm ghlad to hear your Father is adapting to his new life. We should all be so brave.

Yes, he is brave and what strikes me so strongly is how he's learned to adapt over these past few years and now, the past few weeks. My father has never been a go with the flow sorta guy, but that's exactly what he's challenged to become at this time in his life. And of course, sometimes he flows better than others, as do we all. But he's a~flowin'!

Thanks for reading and for writing!
