Dr. Jensen’s latest patients have gone missing in the apartment tower across from St. Bernadette’s. As she uncovers their whereabouts, she must come to terms with her past and a patient she failed to care for.
I wrote this on a rainy Monday afternoon in May while listening to Erik Satie’s Once Upon A Time In Paris. What my wife would later jokingly refer to as “Mental Apartment”, was my personal send-off for the women in my life. With this piece, I hoped to acknowledge the sacrifices and choices we all have to make as we age and how we often judge ourselves unfairly for making those choices.
