Solving a jigsaw puzzle. From start to finish. Drinking my grandfathers homemade wine. Passing time. 

I remember this simple task from my childhood. Something he did everyday. He was always sitting at the head of the dining room table; solving a puzzle, working a word-find. 

He was just passing time. A daily ritual that seemed to occupy him as if he were just waiting for death.
