Postcard-from-the-Recession

As part of our Op-Ed series "Postcards From the Recession," which shares on-the-ground reports from throughout Southern California, Kathy Gosnell Seiler, a copy editor at The Times, tells her story of the house she worked to rebuild only to lose to foreclosure.

The house was meant to be my refuge, a place where I could plant perennials and know I'd see them flower year after year, an investment for my daughter and me after many years of renting.

Artist Sean Kelly drew up the 'postcard' for the Op-Ed as he has for the previous installments of this series.

Got knocked down, got up, and then got better
