My guy requested Doyle Lawson bluegrass so I got an exquisite gospel album from iTunes and we listened together to my phone while going through our photo album.
My Jewish vet beckoned me to come say hello. Neither of us was sure what his fascination was with the box of kleenex on his tray. But we agreed that Luis Tiant was one of the all time great Red Sox.
Eventually I told them both that I really had to go, had things I needed to do. But when I left I just took myself for a quiet walk in the woods.
There is no perfect way to know where you are needed most.
