Taking a Temperature

Today, I visit a 92-year-old aunt in the hospital. Though I knew she was ailing, I haven't seen much of her in recent years, being away most of the time. I am therefore the more strongly struck by the transformation, by how she has shrunk and by the coolness in her hands as I say goodbye.
