In 2012, my granddaughter Andrea, a toddler at the time, would stand in her crib babbling to an empty rocking chair. This went on for months. What did she see that my daughter and I didn’t? Andrea was born five years after her 28-year-old aunt Andrea died unexpectedly.
Most of us are good at taking care of ourselves and the stuff we own. While in quarantine, I posted on FB. "When this is over, we are going to need a haircut." Dozens agreed. We get annual flu shots, hire people to take care of our lawn, and check our bank balance to make sure we have enough money. In other words, we are very good at taking care of the external stuff.
