6:07am sunrise from 59th Street in LA

The greater the light, the darker the shadows.  Even those of us who welcome the light carry pockets of darkness within us – old attitudes, habits, fears, addictions, judgments that once worked in the shadows, perhaps, but are inappropriate in the light of new possibility.  We can be grateful to the shadows within us because they help us to resist the temptation to judge those still choosing to stay in the dark.              ...Rev. Ed Townley
