work_excerpt: 
LOOKING BACK I meant to return long before this but in looking back we learn too much of loss and I dreaded that. Now going through the house and my parents’ lives too revealed by what they saved and what they left behind for me to find, I feel nothing but pain for the past trying to understand how I fell so short of what I intended to do with my life. How life twists and turns against us. How a childhood is not really understood until it is lived a second time in memory. How wonderful and how terrible it seems now because it is gone and because it was mine.
