For the elderly person the nexus of life can be chronic illness.
Its the one thing so many share.
My husband’s brothers all talk about the illnesses they share or how many times they go to the doctor – uggh.
Disease (doctors) might seem like the core of life but it doesn’t need to be.
What about finding new connections? My client might never have enjoyed bingo but it’s a social connection she’s now enjoying.
My friend’s father always loved machinery but his wife (with Alzheimers) needs to connect on a different level now – they love watching birds.
I like the idea that nature can be one important nexus for our aging friends and family members.
The photograph “Chains and People” (at the top) was meant to convey that sense of ordered chaos.
Hopefully a connection with nature can smooth some of the chaos away.
Thanks to the A to Z challenge for giving us a blogging Nexus in April.
What’s your Nexus in your life???
