The Woman Who Shined

 Once upon a time there was a woman who had had enough of the complications of life. There were so many things to worry about, so many things demanding her attention, all amassing in and about her in a way that made her shrink into herself. 

    The more she looked about her and saw the chaotic whirl of her spinning life, the more it appeared as though it were a magnet attracting more and more until the weight of it all lead to remorse and sorrow and desperation. The day came when she had sunk so low that she found herself asking a very particular question. What was it that she truly needed on her spinning axis of life?

    Very little came the answer.

    Less still if she changed the essence of herself.

     So she threw herself into the sky and became a star.

    And there she found herself surrounded by those of like-minds, who had eschewed complexity to do a simple thing: shine.
