More of the Last of ‘Em

The last bouquet of tulips continues to fail and to die, with utmost grace and beauty.

It can be rewarding to poke your eyes where they don’t usually go.

Old age can be beautiful.

Death can be beautiful.

I know this from experience.

For I was holding my aged father’s hand at the moment he died.

He died at home, in his own bed, with his family around him.

His was a good, and a beautiful death.
