Talking about thoughts and feelings can be difficult for anyone. Older people may not be ready to talk openly with you or other family members about how they feel, so sometimes, just sitting quietly also gives them time to work out how to express how they feel.

I love the writing game. It gets me bouncing out of bed, and dragging my feet at night when I have to finish up for the day. I started at The Bendigo Advertiser as the Creative Services Coordinator, and after many changes, I have ended up with a great 12 years with ACM (love that long service leave too as my secret gardens need tending sometimes). Working from home is tops and I hope I have many more productive times ahead.
