Lake of Tears

This is the tale of two teardrops—one of sadness, one of joy—that set out on a quest to find their natural place in Teardrop Lake. They hang onto a cat’s whiskers, spin around and around on a bicycle wheel, create paths where there were none before, until they meet up and mingle to form a single wholeness of feeling. The teardrop heroine manages to escape from the handkerchief that’s trying to wipe her away and has many adventures on the way to Teardrop Lake. Each stage of her journey, each of her encounters, is full of insights and the end is moving enough for us to shed a tear or two of our own. A delightful story.
