For the last couple of days I've been thinking about George. He can be read in different ways. In one version he was born on the left, traveled through a lot of difficult and scarring times, but was lucky or hard working enough to end up healthy after the mid-point of his life. He looks back and learns from the past while he takes in a better future.

A second version of George is that he was born oblivious to the turmoil around him, hopped blindly through life without being fazed, and now lives on a hill above it all, glad he's not involved. He now sees his past, but doesn't take in the fact that he might have caused a few of those accidents he avoided along the way.

Up on the hill, in the background, I see the outline of a person. What is this person thinking?
