There are ever-expanding cracks in the walls of this room and, for good measure, a lonely exposed nail gouging their plaster. I walk to the wall, pull out the nail and place a bandage over the wound.

How lovely these ancient walls are for exposing their fragility! For allowing me to care for them as they care for me.
