I write a blog about downsizing:
The disposal of stuff: 1 thing every day for 500 days; the launching of a child; the evolution of expectations; and all the musings that go along with careening-- planned and very unplanned-- toward the next adventure, whatever it turns out to be.

  5. Even when my son tries to have private conversations with his Grandmom, I loiter in the vicinity just wanting to catch a snippet of their joyful banter. Her side is slightly addled by a stroke, but her grandson never misses a word.
