Exquisite, Ryan. You have woven something with beautiful thread and in doing so you have sent out cranes that may circle the hearts of your writing readers.

I came to this piece because I feel for anyone who has created a read that is 8 or more minutes long on a platform that caters to the 1 or 2 minute reader. I am dedicated to words well rendered — not that I am a consistent artist. Thank you for offering something that was not only worth it, but caused me to lean back and read it over again, slowly.

And disappearing? It simply transmutes. If the art touches even one heart, the world is changed. I will carry the story of Sibelius’ crane . . .
