Between Darkness and Light

Between darkness and light there is shadow. Neither dark nor light. A very apt comparison for an immortal soul trapped within a mortal body. We who dwell for a glimpse of time then move on into eternity trapped between death and what lies beyond. I for one am a christian and believe that heaven lies beyond and an eternal purpose further beyond.

There are many reasons for our existence and many who ponder them. One reason often overlooked is that we exist for this short mortal time to grow, learn, experience, and take in knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of things small. Then when we move on into the next existence we might take our knowledge of things small and use it as a musician might use his repertoire in the things that are much greater.

I love light, but I also love darkness and the experiences between range from frightening to breathtaking. I hope in this blog to share in a journey along the edge of shadow and all the complexities that entails. A journey of discovery and understanding, of perception and truth, from past to future, and from darkness to light and all the shadows in between.

There is more to life then merely to exist and every single moment there is an opportunity to capture an understanding of something smaller and larger . If you only take the time to see and to watch and to understand.
