If you live in the dark a long time

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

If you live in the dark a long time and the sun comes out, you do not cross into it whistling. There's an initial uprush of relief at first, then--for me, anyway--a profound dislocation. My old assumptions about how the world works are buried, yet my new ones aren't yet operational.There's been a death of sorts, but without a few days in hell, no resurrection is possible.

Oh! This is profound Angeli. Its true, if we rush into the sun after being in dark for long we can be blinded.
Have a nice Sunday:)
