I have a sister-in-law who is an alcoholic. She hasn't worked for ten years enabled financially by her parents. Friday afternoon she proclaimed to her sister, via phone, that she was an alcoholic. She lives in North Carolina. We live in Texas. Saturday morning my wife and another sister-in-law boarded a plane to NC. This morning I stumbled across you and Rilke and sent the poem to my alcoholic sister-in-law...ain't life beautiful!
