Happily Ever After

Man standing alone on mountain top picture

He stands alone on the ledge, the wind tugging at his coat.  Below, the mountain drops away sharply, cold grey stone, stark against the cloud-shadowed patchwork fields.  A lonely cottage sends up a thin wisp of smoke into the evening.  She is there, alone, perhaps wondering where he is, but probably not, for she no longer cares for him.  Bitter years of arguing have seen to that.  The love that once held them together has died.
