Elizabeth and I greet each other with pleasure. I’m standing in the passage outside our office to give participants in a new group directions to our room. In greeting me she slows, but keeps moving slowly and steadily down the long passage. Her body is angled forward, her walker bearing her weight. She’s the first to arrive, as she was for every session of our previous group.
