“It’s a wrap.” Isn’t that the expression that they use at the end of the making of a movie? Just today, I discovered that is a pretty good analogy of this legal process. In my case, it has been nearly two and a half years in the making.
So, now as the “production” is coming to an end with the sentencing hearing schedule for Wednesday, it dawned on me today that there is a strange feeling that when this is done, things will go back to normal. Except that normal, for me, should include Christopher and it won’t.
This process may be done and it may be time for my life to become normal, but it won’t go back to normal. It will be time to find a new normal.
I don’t want a new normal.
