Half-Light: Weekly Photo Challenge
“Every day you play with the light of the universe.”
Krista’s challenge this week invites us to share a photograph of the magical half-light between dusk and darkness. She further challenges us to tie our choices to a favorite story or lyric. As I thought about my choice, a capture I made as evening settled in during a visit with good friends in San Francisco, I thought of the lyrics to a favorite Simon and Garfunkel song “Bridge Over Troubled Water”.
“There is light in darkness, you just have to find it.”
For me, the thing about the lyric is the comforting thought that although we all face trouble at least occasionally, someone will be there to catch us as we fall, to light our way through the darkness, to offer a shoulder to cry on when it is most needed.
“If you have knowledge , let others light their candles in it.”
For me bridges signify a connection – not only between opposite shores but also between souls – between friends, lovers, even strangers. There is so much that connects us if only we would take the time to recognize what we share rather than that which divides us.
“Kindness is the light that dissolves all walls between souls, families, and nations.”
This past week my husband and I completed our move to our new home. Unfortunately I then managed to come down with a nasty flu which I am convinced resulted from the stress of moving. Of course, none of that matters a bit when we look at the sadness visited upon our neighbors in Belgium. Let us hope that the world’s darkness turns to light sooner rather than later.
Wishing you a light-filled week ahead.
