...that each is as it should be...

light fabricates shadow,
shaping illusions and fantasy 
so that they might seem real.
light is not the destination of the soul
but its friendly trickster.
by embracing all light,
all shadow, all illusion, all reality,
we become free to explore,
create and trust not only our path,
but the paths of others-
that each is as it should be.

the opposite side.
of light.
is shadow.
which is silently.
depicted here.
on this.
tulip bud.
join us for the silent,
enjoy your moments.
just BE.

Sunny but not summery greetings from M√°laga! It's been raining, shining with cool mornings but next week it should be warm or even hot.
Happy Sunday!

Of course, there would be no shadow without the warming Spring sun. Thus the silent shadow just reinforces the beauty of new growth if not for the end of winter and the glory of this season. Soft, warm and beautiful!

Those little flower buds seem to be heralding in the new day. A great way to start the day!
