One of my co-workers plays folk music every few weeks for the shut-ins in the geriatric ward of the hospital. Many of these folks are not in the best of health physically or mentally, but Steve's entertainment is certainly appreciated. He was telling me today about one occasion when he looked around the room and saw that everyone was asleep except for one little old lady who was smiling and clapping her hands. She stayed attentive right to the end of the show, obviously enjoying herself. When Steve was packing to go home she confided, "I'll be so happy when I get my hearing aids back and I can hear you play!"
