Night vision

…”But the darkness pulls in everything-
shapes and fires, animals and myself,
how easily it gathers them! –
powers and people-

and it is possible a great presence is moving near me.

I have faith in nights.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke

How does the night pull you in?

Advent 2

“In this strange season when we are suspended between realization and expectation, may we be found honest about the darkness, more perceptive of the light.” ~ Jack Boozer

To know the dark

To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings. – Wendell Berry

How do you walk in the dark?
