Once there was a girl who was so sad she stood very, very still in the same place for a very long time. She was too sad to move or even to breathe. So she grew roots into the ground and she turned into a tree. And then she finally found peace. But she still remembered her sadness, and she could still love and still cry. Every day as the sun set on her branches she cried and cried, and people would come stand under her to be rained on by her tears. Once they were touched by her tears, their eyes were open. They knew love and they understood that love without sadness isn't really love at all. And they lived their lives so rich and full and fearless that the world was never the same.
