Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Time Machine

May 8, 2007

I’m hoping that the passing of time will minimize some of my weird anniversary reactions. For the past couple of days, whenever I’m taking The Wife to work, I imagine that almost every woman I see walking around outside the hospital is her OB/GYN. When I’m at the supermarket, every tall, thin woman will make me do a double-take, for I imagine that I see her there as well.

My psyche has residual fear and respect, I guess, and echoes reverberate over my consciousness as I remember and reflect. One year ago, she was about the most important person in the world to me, as I placed three precious lives in her capable hands. She delivered, of course, both literally and metaphorically. How do you thank someone for something so momentous?
