Annie! This is wonderful! A parable for modern times. And the photo you picked is perfect to go with it.

The point of view shifts almost imperceptibly in the middle. We go from the thoughts of the woman to the thoughts of the boy, and then cross-fade into the final scene (sorry, I see it in my head like a short movie). We aren’t totally sure what happened, but it’s peaceful and good and we know we aren’t meant to.

Well done, dear lady!
