to heal from an (in)curable malady

"This is life's nature: that lives and hearts get broken-those of people we love,  those of people we'll never meet.  The world sometimes feels like the waiting room of the emergency ward and that we who are more or less OK for now need to take the tenderest possible care of the more wounded people in the waiting room, until the healer comes.  You sit with people, you bring them juice and graham crackers.  And then you went on vacations, you go off for a while..."  Traveling Mercies, Anne Lamott
