A moment of wisdom

I was driving a potential new resident from the hospital where she is a patient to visit Thetford House. I was traveling from a part of the city that I didn’t know well and as is customary for me, I got lost. I apologized to her and said, “I don’t know where I am and I am not sure where I am going to end up.”

She turned to me. ‘You are no different than Christopher Columbus,” she replied. “He didn’t know where he was going and he didn’t know where he was when he got there.  And look at what happened to him.”

And this, from a woman with dementia.
