The End of Sorrow

August 13, 2013

Even the most optimistic fall to the plight of humanity, when self-doubt and sorrow exceed the blue of the sky. But it is only an exceedingly lucky man, who on such a day removes himself to a rock in the bay to contemplate his misfortune. As he examines his arrogance and failures, a crane lifts up from the shoreline. The great bird’s leggy, feathery self embodies the hope that propels us to another day. He flies at the man and with his great beak snaps up his sadness and carries it away.
