I’m behind the curve this morning. Recently, I wiped and reinstalled my hard drive, and since, have been searching for and reinstalling apps. Some are huge and time-consuming, like Adobe, and my photos somewhere in the cloud.

This morning, I will share an excellent find, a cartoon essay by Roz Chast who for years has drawn regularly for “The New Yorker.” The magazine has republished (from 2014) “her take” on having to adjust to and cope with aging parents.

Chast expresses her experiences with her tightly bound parents as they enter their nineties. She uses cartoons, and does so profoundly, with insight and wisdom. Her cartoon essay is as impactful as the reality of having loved ones in the process of aging and changing in many ways.

Dear Friends: You will enjoy and appreciate her skillful combinations of art and text. Diana
