There are times in our lives when we doubt most everything we believe in... when belief and reality separates at its joints. We demand answers that never come. We rage at the moon. We weep in silence as time holds us in its grip.

In these moments we are forever altered. Belief and reality become something new.

    While I agree with John L. and Fred M., your photo and narrative are excellent. I think we all have had that feeling at sometime or other in our lives.
