PORTLAND, MAINE — Brian Thompson was scheduled for a 4pm call time, and was set to close. That was before he received a call from the daytime manager today at 1:15pm. 

 

“Hey Brian, it’s Tanya. You want off tonight?”

 

3 hours later, Brian found himself standing on the edge of a grassy mountain top, staring at a sunset, and screaming unfettered emotions into the horizon – releasing energy that had been buried for decades.

 

“Have you ever sat in silence and enjoyed the beauty of nothing at all?” he whispered out-loud as the sun fully disappeared behind the sea, feeling a renewed lightness of being.
