'Tis All for the Best

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

The picture describes a story about a traveler who encounters a terrible storm and because he cannot see very well through the rain, he falls into a ditch and breaks his leg. He sits in the ditch through the night, and when dawn breaks, he notices a broken bridge just ahead. He rejoices that he had fallen when he did instead of trying to cross a broken bridge.
