I wrote a post over at Steve Portigal’s War Stories about an experience I had doing some fieldwork. I spend a lot of time in people’s home (just this week, I got to visit some folks in LA). This serves as a constant reminder of the life of privilege that I possess. This story is just a window into someone’s life where I really had to take a step back and put the person into the whole context of who they are. It is also a reminder to be grateful for the life I lead.
