Where is the Light in Darkness?

Day 122…
The Winter Solstice, December 21, is the longest night.  Is that darkness?   What about the death of a loved one?  Or one’s own death?  What happens when dreams die?  Am I willing to believe in new ones? 
Today I will make candles.
 
When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in darkness.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Truly, it is in darkness that one finds the light, so when we are in sorrow, then this light is nearest of all to us.
Meister Eckhart
Creativity – like human life itself – begins in darkness.
Julia Cameron
