In a small Indian village, not far from Mexico City, on a starry bright winter’s night, a child was born.

Her mother died in childbirth; her father named her Sorrow.

She grew up a happy child. All her life she was glad. Then one day a wise man asked her how, with the name of Sorrow, she had lived her life of joy.

She answered simply, “When my mother died, I heard her spirit whisper, ‘No sorrow lasts. Only joy is everlasting.’ But the others, they only heard the word sorrow.”
