Total independence is a fantasy. When I slow down for a closer look, I see that my life is braced — embraced — in a thousand ways. The underpinnings of spouse, family, friends and home buttress everything important (health, wealth, work, leisure) with added support from, say, our dog and the beauty of our surrounding landscape. It all makes for an intricate structure — this life — held together, standing straight, by love and (mostly) good intentions.
