The Grand Tetons



Have gotten a little less grand. They will no longer bear the burden of providing life giving sustenance to the vulnerable, weak and beautiful.  They can put away the trappings of the season of provision and utility and rest low, low, er….  They are liberated to the mundane, no longer having an important role.  The Grand Tetons have gotten a little less grand but they will rest and not be messed with regularly, and worried over about whether they can sustain their duties.

The work horse and the show horse are being retired, both just for show now.  All life shifts.  No fancy attire, gadgetry or wingdings for them.  The crowds go elsewhere for what they need.  No schedules, overworking or underperforming to be concerned about.

And yes, I am being obtuse.  But some will perhaps get it.

    Oh, the bitter sweet feeling of weaning the babe. All too familiar to me.

    Love the metaphor though!

    I’m sorry to admit, it took me until the 3rd sentence. Well done!
