i was unemployed and back living with my parents. my dad asked me why i didn't go back to my old career. i let him know i couldn't, that i'd have to find something new. he said, "take your time."
One evening, after midnight in fact, when I returned from my shift-work job and quietly tip-toed around my house looking at my three young children sleeping peacefully in their beds.

I can't think of a memory more precious. And that was many, many years ago.
