Hopes (An original short story)




Source


"Grandpa, grandpa, look at those fishes!" The little boy pulled Russell by his hand toward the bridge.  The bridge crossed an artificial pond. From the height of a bird's flight, the pond looked like glasses with the nose bridge, where it was crossed in its narrowest spot.  The sun laid its slanted rays on the pond and, wrapped in brown, yellow and red falling leaves, the park looked like an unshaved ‘Cookie monster'.

Led by his grandson Jerome, Russell turned to his son David, waved at him invitingly, and saw him, unhurriedly, walking towards the bridge.  As they arrived at the middle of the bridge, Russell leaned on the railing while little Jerome put his head through the vertical support bars.

The purpose is relationship. All growth is a waste if it is not put into action: interaction.

Others determine the efficacy of my understanding. Without them, I have no context, no bearing: Growth relative to what - if not those around me?

My relation to others is the contrast; contrast enables vision. These people, all of them, are the light and the shadow that give shape to my life. Without them, there is nothing, there is no reason.
