  1. Oh, Clare! I like the way you’ve presented it, leading us, piece by piece, to the gut-wrenching conclusion. Poignant.

    There is a painting by Bruegel “Landscape with the fall of Icarus” where a somewhat similar “distraction” method is employed: a bucolic country scene with the folk going about their business, not aware that a life is ending and a myth beginning right under their unsuspecting noses: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landscape_with_the_Fall_of_Icarus

    I saw it first, as a reproduction, when I was about 6, and it made a profound impression on me as THE metaphor for life (although that wouldn’t be the term I’d use at that age).
