forgive me for being such a luddite, but i can't figure out how to answer some of the comments on the main "being'' FB page. besides thanks everyone i also would like to suggest to erica, whose parents are caring for their aged parents but resistant to reading "bittersweet'' that she could very subtly pass along what she is reading and thinking, to both generations and thus be a comfort to them all. i'm deeply touched by her concern for them and hope she knows what there are many grandchildren, utterly on their own as caretakers or as observers to what is happening in their family, who carry, or help carry, thisĀ  burden and often find themselves hugely enriched by the experience. ---- jane gross
