It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
–Aristotle Onassis


Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.
–Desiderius Erasmus

photo(285)Every moment of light and dark is a miracle.


Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being.  Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light.
–Albert Schweitzer


You can only come to the morning through the shadows.
–J.R.R. Tolkien


  1. Give light, and the darkness will disappear of itself.
    –Desiderius Erasmus

    One of my favorite quotes.
    Nice pics.

  2. Dark cannot put out the light, the darkest blackest room with one lit match will light and the dark surrounding will stay away for it can not put out the light of Jesus!! Beautiful photos:)

  3. although I appreciated all the pics and sentiments and I feel like I know where they are coming from inside…the last shot of the table vase with pussywillows and shadows took my breath away. what a great shot.

    Wishing you both love and strength, hope and light

    • Thanks, Randy, and right back at you! I always look forward to your comments. If you look in the “Photos” category in the pull down “Category” box, there should be another few that feature shadows and that you might like. They were posted before you started brightening my days by following my blog. 🙂

  4. I think you never sleep, do you? (neither do I – smile)

    I will look through your shots.
    I just quickly glanced at “Shapely” those shots were great. The one perspective – I think it was looking down a stairwell – got my vertigo and stomach going –

    Speak with you later.


  5. Wow. So timely in this dark week.

    And I agree, that last photo is amazing. What I especially love about it is that even though the vase itself is still in darkness, the light casts a shadow that reveals it.
