Sometimes wisdom and sadness come together.
Causing us to step back,
giving us a chance to take in the whole view.
I waited all spring for this gravestone to be unboxed for the season and I was not disappointed. I was not expecting such a evocative face on the lion though, as if he is contemplating all the trials and tribulations we humans create for ourselves. There is a decided weariness in his face that tells the story that continues to unfold around us.
