Many a winding turn

“Health,” I said, “is the slowest possible rate of dropping dead.”

My brother, who’s hospitalized with a mysterious dearth of platelets, managed to work up a grin, though guffaws are unfortunately out of the question right now.

Anyway, while I’m pretty sure he’ll pull through this — the man’s survived things that make me hurt just to contemplate them — I know I’d appreciate it if you’d think about him next time you’re on the line to $DEITY.

    Done. And one of my fellow SAn Franciscans and college classmates is a Buddhist monk. I’ll have her put in a good word, too, to hedge all bets.
