There’s a lot of darkness out there.
The lights in the darkness might be growing smaller, getting blurrier, fading into the distance.
But they’re not going away.
Keep focusing on the light and working toward reaching it.
“We love the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”
We need the dark to see the stars. There can be beauty there. But the beauty is in the contrast, in the new wonders revealed, not in the overwhelming of everything in darkness.
Balance. We have to make it happen. And in times of great darkness, we need to hold onto the lights.
Even the small, faint, receding, blurry ones.
