My Dear Friend,
The thing about living with the curtains closed is that it’s dark. And problem is that in the dark it’s easy to get confused about where you are going. It’s easy to trip on things that should be familiar. It’s easy to loose yourself in the darkness.
I’ve always been just a little afraid of the dark. Well, actually afraid of what is in the dark, as my dad always says. Similarly, I don’t like swimming in dark, murky water where I can’t see what is underneath me, what is maybe swimming under me.
I mean you must be crazy to be okay with that!
I guess what I’m saying is that sometimes I forget to open the shades and let the light shine in. Often I let myself stumble about in the insufficient light not realizing I could easily alter my addled state.
(if you haven’t caught on,we aren’t talking about literal light and darkness here!)
But then there is days when I remember the importance of letting the light shine in.
Those are always good days.
Days full of love and learning.
Days worth reflecting on.
I appreciate the shape and the arrangement of the fixtures of my life.
There is a strong sense of clarity.
The light is warm, rich and ethereal.
Seeing things better helps change the way you hear things too.
It’s so much easier to understand the meaning of words when you can see the face behind them.
I understand my boy better in the light.
The light chases away the shadows of worries that swim below the surface.
The vague, unformed creatures that lurk in the darkness have fled far, far away.
We dance in the light.
