Suffering and beauty lift us out of self-absorption to something greater than ourself.  Even humor, a touch of beauty for its dip into joy, helps us get over our bad self for the moment.  There is lightness.  Life isn’t all about shuffling along under a load.  We can set it down.  Trust that Someone or something’s got our back, be it God or friend or peace with self.  When we hope or even fear as we ought from the lessons of literature and poetry, we realize a fresh reverence.  Privy to the vast range of possibilities ancient and modern tales disclose, we learn new ways of responding to challenges and can exchange the load for a dream.
