Stuck in two deep wells

Posted on Thu, Apr 25, 2013 at 2:02 PM

You've got a flashlight to help you see in the dark, and I've got a rope to help me escape. My problem is that I can't see a way out, and your problem is you see the solution before you but cannot act. I've an idea. Call out to me! Yell my name at the top of your lungs! I'll throw the rope over and pull you out, you can trust in my strength, then you can illuminate my world with your light. I want to save you, not only because you deserve it, but so that you can save me. Then we can draw on the depth of our respective wells while we sit outside on a rock enjoying the sunshine for possibly the first time. —Forget the Consolation Prize
