Three panel narrative, titled and signed in pencil by J. Crane
Here's a story to put on the wall. Something about being cold and drowning in a deluge. About being without light, warmth or any kind of life at all. The cold wet gloom is met in a flourish of unexpected and surpassing beauty. Warmth and light burst forth in a transmutative moment. Small movement begins, new growth curls upwards, warming and awakening. The heat and light pull gently from above on the new life, which, in a grand triumph, bursts from the dark earth into the bright blue sky.
