  1. Your second haiku reminds me of a visit I made to a nursing home a few years ago, located near the college I attended. As I was entering the building to visit a friend, I saw sitting on a bench outside the building, one of my former professors, a brilliant man, a master of higher mathematics and an accomplished Hebrew scholar. His wife was reading aloud to him from a children’s picture book. I knew immediately what had happened to this brilliant man’s mind. I greeted him by name, but there was not a glimmer of recognition in his eyes.


  2. And how much courage it took for his wife to read that book to him ! It is not the memory-less one who suffers, but the one who keeps the memories of what has been lost. I have witnessed this quiet courage quite often in my life.


Thank you!
