what if it is?

i’ve been a devoted follower of ‘six feet under’ since it’s beginning in 2001.  oh, the fishers.  i followed them through five seasons of loves and losses and betrayals and awakenings.  over the past few months, i’ve been re-watching the entire series and, i’m in love again.

i’ve saved the final three episodes for today.  it’s an ending i know will be bittersweet.

there’s one scene, in particular, that really struck me this time around.  it’s dark, and profound, and yet, oh, so true — a little gem of wisdom from the fishers.

nathaniel fisher, sr: you hang on to your pain like it means something, like it’s worth something. well let me tell you, it’s not worth shit. let it go. infinite possibilities and all you can do is whine.

david fisher: well, what am i supposed to do?

nathaniel fisher, sr: what do you think? you can do anything, you lucky bastard, you’re alive. what’s a little pain compared to that?

david fisher: it can’t be so simple.

nathaniel fisher, sr: what if it is?
