“Regarding Henry”


I watched a movie called “Regarding Henry” starring Harrison Ford the other night. I kind of remembered the movie, but like so many movies, it was a distant memory. I don’t know who told me that I should watch again, but it was sobering to me.
The back story was irrelevant for me. But, the focus was so similar to what I have been going through. Brain injury. Therapy. Scared.  The protagonist had a child. Very driven. Working too hard.

Not really realizing what is important.
And, it is gone in an instant.

Instant.
That the end of the movie, the family is better than the were before.  I hope so. A movie is about two hours. For me, this is my life. I don’t know when I will get “better,” just like I don’t know when I will recover.  And, that is “recovery” anyway.

This tragedy  actually made my family better is so many ways.

A movie is about 2 hours. For me, the story has no “The End.”
For now.
