A good one, Bill.

Thank you for the endorsement on Linkedin. I am still funbling my way through the site. I find it difficult to navigate and really don't know what I'm doing.

Perhaps she has to reassure herself.

This points out the loneliness of the nursing home.

Nursing homes are not so popular in Finland, some of then are not so "good quality"... Or are some of the oldies not so good quality ?-(

Interesting - very open to different interpretations. Is it an old lady who realigns the tangerine segments ? Or is it a visitor, doing this for a resident ? Anyway, we see "her" doing it, and, as Magyar pointed out : alignment is a task we all have to accomplish, day after day.
