  • Coffee around the kitchen table from the old percolator pot.
    Hours passing, visiting about nothing in particular.
    Just being together - 3 generations with no agenda - no place to go.

    Smiling, laughing, sharing concerned furrowed brows.
    Tending the day’s scrapes or the year's wounds.
    Celebrating the week's success or an annual milestone.
    Just being together.

    Thank you for teaching me this -
    the value of just being together - no agenda - no place to go.
    Put on another pot - the evening is young . . .

    ~ Brent Beeson – Remembering Grandma Perceval
