December 3, 2002
yesterday I saw the littlest old man. he has to be late 80’s or early 90’s. his face is so weathered and wrinkled. it reminded me of pictures you see of fishermen, centuries ago. skin, leathery and worn. I see him in the halls of the hospital. due to the route he takes, I assume he is visiting someone. he’s pretty mobile, albeit slow. he was seated and sipping something hot when I passed him yesterday.

if you are lucky enough to make eye contact though, his face just lights with a smile.

I hope I see him today too.
