In spite of feeling very uncomfortable in this situation the grasshopper didn't dare to jump. It seemed that this little critter was more afraid of what was waiting there in dark garden than of that curious guy with the camera so close.
In some way, we are in a similar situation right now. A new year, an unknown future is waiting for us. Today, it may appear dark to us - but who knows? We can only find out if we jump - and then make the future as bright as we can! We have to do so!
Happy New Year!
