Black Swans

We didn’t expect to find out that way.

We didn’t expect it would happen.

We didn’t even think it was possible.

But looking back now, it seems obvious.

How could we have thought it impossible?

That’s a Black Swan.

The thing that most people forget about Black Swans, is that there were people asking if it was possible.

The jesters and children and old wives telling tales.

They whispered about the swan with feathers darker than night.

We just thought they were crazy.
