Visiting a friend

This morning I was fortunate to spent some time visiting with my friend Josh who recently entered hospice care for his advanced epitheliod sarcoma. You may remember his film, My Left Hand, and of course his blog.

A week ago everyone was sure he was dying, and soon. When I arrived today he was sitting in a chair eating breakfast. He was able to take a cell phone call. The human body's ability to hang onto quality of life and the human spirit's need to connect with loved ones never cease to amaze me.

Josh was surrounded by family and beloved friends last week. That's a good way for all of us to live, basking in the care of those we love and who love us.
