I have often observed over the years that moments of great sorrow or great joy rarely are composed of purely one or the other. My darkest moments come accompanied with hints of light, as when tears of grief remind me i cry only because i *had* someone or something of value to lose. And on occasions of highest elation, i’m faintly reminded of how fleeting such moments tend to be.
This came to mind again when i came across this meme — which also connects well with the Morning Dark poem i posted a week ago.
May you experience harmony this holiday season.
