We had a bunch of Ken’s co-workers from Hospice Family Care over tonight for a lovely potluck dinner… a year in the works to get 12 different schedules coordinated, but worth it. A gathering of hospice chaplains, counselors, social workers, volunteer coordinator, nurse and spouses, where all could put aside the usual focus on death and dying and talk about vacations and how best to get stains out of t-shirts. We had sweet spring weather – a still, crystal-clear night and 65 degrees. Ken lit the firepit and I lit a million little tealights all over the yard. Much fun to prepare -- and to savor.
