“Our lives are like islands in the sea, or like trees in the forest, which co-mingle their roots in the darkness underground.”

-William James-




Darkness always has a place in our lives. It ebbs and flows with the circumstances and experiences we encounter.

Sometimes it is only a disappointment and the world can turn a shade of gray.  However, when we lose a loved one, the world can become black. Our “roots” become exposed; we are rubbed raw. As we move through grief, the darkness becomes sublimated so the light can shine again.

Life is keeping a balance between the light and the dark, and it would be hard to appreciate either without experiencing both.

May a ray of light pierce any darkness you may be experiencing today.
