A Symphony of Cicadas - By Crissi Langwell

Prelude


When a moment is so tremendous it knocks the familiar part of the world off balance, you’d think there would be some sort of clue before it happened. Maybe just a hint, or even a premonition that would have allowed me to at least hold my breath until the moment had passed and I could find my footing once again.

But life doesn’t work that way.

Life is often unfair. Sometimes things have to hurt, sometimes they’re even unbearable, and sometimes the pain is necessary.

I learned this lesson the hard way.

This is my story.
