Taking care of someone who is nearly 99 takes constant readjustment. What she can do, what is good for her and in what amounts, differ even during the same day. I shared some passages with Babu again, and this time kept it shorter, telling her that’s all I had for today rather than asking her if she wanted to push it. Even still, it was time beautifully spent.
“Alibi for muuurdeerr…” I will never forget reading about what her high school English teacher had to say about how Babu reads: “entertainingly.” Babu has some of that theatre in her soul and I love how she expresses herself when she reads!
