Recently I walked the rugged coastline of my small town with a friend. I am cautious always when taking people on these walks as there are many loose rocks and deep plunges into a fiercely thrusting sea below if one dares to not take the journey seriously. Looking up briefly I saw our shadows thrown onto the opposing side of the canyon, striding out over the dark part of the wall and stretching without effort into the light. I felt such a surge of joy. There truly is relief in how shadow and light are the shape of each other’s existence.
