Implicated

When my wife was diagnosed with terminal cancer I blamed myself.  Her cancer was the result of the indifference of the universe.  And I’ve been indifferent to her, failing to pay attention, to be really present, to listen.  I’m just the local representative of that bigger indifference.  I’m wholly implicated.
