For weeks, we have passed this spot in the morning, during the day and in the evening, and we see this swan. You can see him here in silhouette. He is alone. Always alone. He swims back and forth, first south, then north, then back again. Why could this be? We have come up with only one reason. He is waiting. Like in An Affair to Remember high atop the Empire State Building, Waiting. Somewhere along the way, in his trip back to this place to celebrate spring with the one love of his life, he lost her. It hits us that there is no higher price to pay for singular devotion and loyalty than loneliness.
