Who would guess that Tanner could have such a life? Who would guess that a woman sitting in a hovel could have good news? We are blessed. Yeah, even though it seems so often that scepticism is the right road. Good things do come, even if not for you or me specifically all the time. But look how lucky we are to see even a copy of such a beautiful painting. We are blessed. What a gift to Man.
