Found out this morning that my teacher, muse, and mother figure, Rebecca, is in the hospital. I didn’t know for a week, and when I got there this morning, seeing her prone took my breath away. I
knew when I started seeing her 7 years ago, when she was 87, that she might get sick one day. But, I didn’t really know it.
She’d shattered her ankle and she’s battling pneumonia, and being a Christian Scientist, she’s refusing medication. I’ve never felt so useless.
My heart’s broke.
