One of the elderly ladies I delivered to tonight was so starved for companionship. She invited me in and started showing me pictures of her grandchildren. She talked as if she hadn't talked to someone in days. I feigned interest and stayed a good fifteen minutes. I wanted to get home, though, to settle in my nightly routine of Bruce Williams' radio show. How do you kindly leave someone who so needs you -- needs anyone? Sadly, I know how she feels and should be more sympathetic and less selfish. I vow on this blog to try and make more time for others like her at work. That could be me some day and I have often felt to the point of being crazed I was so lonesome.
