9/9 Back at his group home after a visit to the farm, Henry checks the action outside while settling down for supper. He and his three roommates (all women) often eat separately due to personality conflicts, but he doesn't seem to mind. He has lived in the same house for a decade, with a rotating crew of caring staff, and seems comfortably at home there.

Henry seems to have a much more settled demeanor in this setting, compared to the mood in the photos from McDonald's. The gaze out the window is fascinating.

Great series. I think I do like this one the most as it seems to be showing in metaphorical way your brother being not actually mentally present in the world surrounding him.
