Success emerges from the shadows



  “Every man carries with him through life a mirror, as unique and impossible to get rid of as his shadow.” ― W.H. Auden, The Dyer’s Hand

After a frantic and possibly frustrating four hours of concentrated physical exertion  and mental stress and strain our determined month end mover finally mounted his cycle and dragged his crudely modified load of personal possessions behind him out of the school yard and towards his new destination.

Editorial Comment

This is the fifth and final installment of a five-part series illustrating one man’s determined efforts to transport his personal possessions from one location to another. 


As I stated in a previous article this man could easily be the poster boy for determination, concentration and success.He is not  a quitter and could be called a rugged individualist.

His challenges seemed at times to be a roller coaster ride of ups and downs as he struggled not ony with his cycle’s damaged wheel but also the bulk of his possessions which kept shifting in the makeshift container he initially started his trek with.

I hope that his efforts and final successes will serve as an inspiration to you as you face your own hardships and personal challenges.
