Every morning and afternoon, after Gus eats, I sit him on my lap and hold him upright so his food will go more easily down his esophagus. This is one of the treatments that we’re doing with Gus for his Megaesophagus.
We sit for 10 or 15 minutes and I’ve come to see these times as meditations. I’ve noticed, when I’m calm, Gus is calm and we sit comfortably together.
As we sat on the couch this morning, I could hear the constant knock against the house of a string of Christmas lights, in the warm wind. It was soothing, like a ticking clock can be.
I thought it was as visually appealing as it sounded.
