Melancholy Bliss?

English: Easter holidays in the Bulgarian Orth...

Good Friday brings with it sombre introspection. For some of us, it is a sad day. In an effort to not eradicate this solemn day, but to lift it out of its melancholy grasp, I give you this quote by someone wise, but Unknown:

Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal.  It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.”  ~ Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune.

Have you ever noticed just how wise Unknown is? I think I will claim that moniker as my nom de plume.

Bliss is finding something that lifts us out of the melancholy, while at the same time giving Good Friday its due. What do you think?
