I will never stop being obsessed with this idea of light and dark. It’s no accident that my book is titled around the idea of light and shadow.
I’ve only just come across this quote, and I love it, it sums up perfectly the idea that has been in my head for 10 years now.
It is because there was and continues to be light in the world and in our lives, that the shadows exists. I know some people who have been bereaved don’t particularly like the idea that grief is the price we pay for love, that grief is simply love with nowhere to go, but it works for me. The idea that the shadowy darkness I feel, comes out of the love and light in my life.
