“Look at how a single candle can both defy and define the darkness.”
~ Anne Frank
When I look back at the lives my grandparents, and those who came before them, endured I see hardship and dark times. A closer look reveals a generous measure of community, faith, laughter, and even joy as well.
I wonder what my great-grandchildren will see when they look back on these days we are living right now. It’s not all dark, no matter how it is sometimes portrayed in the media.
I choose to penetrate the darkness with a quiet and steady light. I choose to rely on faith and hope. I choose to do my best to make the tiny piece of the world I occupy just a little bit brighter and a little bit calmer.
Words and photographs are tools I use to do that. What instruments do you use to make your life beautiful?
