"All are but parts of one stupendous whole.
whose body Nature is, and God the soul."
~ Alexander Pope ~
I'm not sure there's really such a thing as a happy ending. There are cycles that complete to our satisfaction, and goals that we achieve, but everything that happens is ultimately part of a continuum. There are no endings that aren't tied up with beginnings, and no hope that is not tied up in some way with despair. There is no healing without wounding, no growth without struggle, and no birth without death.
There is no point of arrival, and I have nothing to prove.
