Night is darkest before sunrise. Fearful and uncertain, we wait for the sun to make its appearance to clarify, warm, reassure that darkness is temporary. As it rises, the sun dispels shadows and doubt, giving rise to light and clarity. Reaching, stretching, as one does on waking, it goes beyond itself filling every nook and cranny, dispelling all that the night claimed. Then it reigns supreme for the day chasing after shadows that stubbornly refuse to evaporate. The sun always rises even when there are clouds. Though we may forget that there is always light present waiting to be discovered when life seems dark, we should strive to remember that behind those worries and doubt there is always a blue sky waiting to be found, if only we take the time to discover it.
