Day 105: Four.Twenty.13

I had forgotten the power, the sheer force, of the darkness of this place.

I mean the absence of light, sun, day. The kind of darkness that doesn’t happen in the city.

The stars, the quiet, the comfort.

I mean that in contrast to the beautiful light that emanates from here.

The time alone, processing, brain-breathing time.

I used to know this darkness. Backpacking trips with my father. Filled with stars. And early morning dew.

Life as a city girl has all but faded these memories.

I am grateful to reconnect with this beauty, this darkness.

I am grateful.

I am grateful.

Those words repeat themselves every time I am here.
