Loading "Buffalo" by Patti Dietrick; https: Anita is a writer of non-fiction and fiction, with a forthcoming collection entitled, West Side Girl due out later this year. Welcome to Our Fiction Section! Her sturdy rubber-soled shoes sounded more like a solitary basketball practice than a struggle to cross the parquet flooring assisted only by the solid, metal legs of her walker.
Her labored effort echoed from the empty closet as she passed. I followed her progress until, framed by the door, she stopped. Mother had a hesitation before every action: She transformed before me, jerking frail body upright, hands tight on the support bar and adjusting attitude from confusion to confidence.
The conviction was an attitude she projected to shield herself from judgment, the same bravado despised in her own mother and categorized as stubbornness in her mother-in-law.
Yesterday, the doctor said Mother was doing well and suggested that with supervision and when she felt ready, she forego the walker and move to using a cane. I thought, Ready, but not foolhardy. Moving with determination, she took her customary rocker, and thrust the walker aside as if it was a despised enemy.

The years forged a distance between us and she meant to hold me accountable. When the knock sounded, we listened without comment.
The noise took me back to the first night of my visit when Mother slowly rocked, looking into middle space, searching for something to say. She waited for me to entertain her—our lives so different it was awkward to make conversation.
She moved her chair soberly back and forth, and I struggled to find topics of mutual interest. I thought perhaps a chair spring protesting, and asked her. The sound had a hollow thump and repeated at odd intervals.
However, we were too tired to investigate, and I put Mother to bed. She confessed the knock had been going on since her return from rehab and no one knew what it was.
It was the third day of my visit when the physical therapist discovered the robin.
From outside the back room, the bird flew into an elongated glass window, thumping it firmly, and retreated to a tree branch for review. He insisted on announcing his presence, repeating the move with fortitude, and we were afraid he would knock himself silly.By focusing on this transformation, the author is able to interpret many historical phenomena, such as rising levels of crime, degeneration of standards of conduct and morality, and the growth of .
