Even in his maturity,
Bones is haunted by his past.  

Lying in bed beside his Griselda,
he will first begin to moan,
and then it comes—
a high pitched animal scream.  

Griselda wakes Bones up,
as gently as she can.

Very sad. My mother screamed in the night and scared me half to death sometimes.

Well some things are just so hard to erase from the mind.

Bones has made so much progess that when he settles down he can self reflect and try and dwell on the good things he's accomplished even though it's hard sometimes.

Take care

Thanks Eric,

for the kind words on Bones.  Bones is doing very well, like many people, he has bad nights every once in a while.  I don't think anyone knows what causes those bad nights.

Bones has left a deep impression upon me.
