4/25/06 My father has always loved to read. Here he's at the Fairfield nursing home, where he had good light and a (plastic) wing chair to relax in. I brought him loads of magazines from my daughter, who got them through airline miles and saved them up specifically for my father.

Now he still has magazines, but he's in a dark room at a different nursing home, and he doesn't really enjoy magazines any more. He can't really read them - but I'm not sure he could read when he spent all those hours leafing through them.

My father used to fall asleep reading books or the newspaper on the couch when I was little. I don't remember seeing him actually read.
