A Wonderful Life

Last night I wrote a post on the impact of three teachers on me...and when I woke up this morning the first thing through my head was the line, "You see, George, you've had a wonderful life," from the Capra film. That line scared the shit out of me--I think the last time I could use it would have been 2002, and even then it was during my mother's illness. Once she died, my opinion mattered little in how my father, brother, and I would proceed in terms of legally and ceremoniously.

2002. Imagine being expendable for 9 years.

Read on, dear reader.
