Time Passages

While packing books to send to friends in different countries, today I am back in that time when he would help seal them with cello tape, label them and then make a list of all the people they were being sent to. He didn't complain about this tedious task even when he had to sit with one leg straight out, stiff from surgery, which left him unable to bend his knee…he enjoyed the geography of where the books were going…and loved to collect the stamps which came with gift books from different parts of the world.

Soon it will be two years since he passed away and now these brown paper packets I pack clumsily with stiff fingers carry away more than books…
