The best part about talking to the widow of a patient you worked with many years ago is getting to tell her all the things you couldn't when you were the hospice chaplain, and not a friend. It's really nice to get to tell someone you love her so, so much, and that you missed her.

If you've ever wondered if your nurse or chaplain or social worker or aide loved you as much as you loved her, the answer is probably a resounding yes.

I'm off for a little writing retreat for the next 2 weeks. Working on an essay for the Pope's new book, and some magazine articles, and a proposal for a new book of my own. I'll be off social media, so good bye and be well! ... See MoreSee Less

I just somehow realized that there is a whole other (other) Facebook message inbox where people request to connect on Messenger. I've always ignored these notifications because I don't have and don't want Messenger, but I now realize I have dozens, maybe hundreds of unread and unanswered message requests that actually have messages attached to them. I'm sure I have deleted many of them as well.

SO to anyone who has sent me a message that I never replied to, I apologize. I'm going to start working my way through the backlog now. If you sent me a message and I do not reply in the next few weeks, please forgive me and send it again. There's an excellent chance I deleted it thinking it was just another attempt by Facebook to get me to sign up for their creepy Messenger system.
