There it is, right at the end of this electoral year tunnel - wonderful, glorious LIGHT!
I have never been so relieved. Except maybe after 11+ hours of hard back labor, when my firstborn finally decided better out than in. That, at least, was an experience I was willing to repeat, since I was delighted with the outcome. Not so sure I will be either way this time.
But enough politics! What we really need is more of that light!
Have you ever met a person who could light up a room just by entering it? How about someone whose quiet, inner light drew you in, like a moth to flame? What do folks like that have in common?
Some would tell you they are more genuine than average folks, but that isn't always the case. I've known hucksters & charlatans who were flamboyant and boisterous, and some who were quiet and deceptively sincere. (And, no! I am not still talking politics!*) What they do have in common is that they are human, just like you and me. No better or worse.
All of us have light. All of us can shine. But only those with eyes - and hearts - open can see the light in everyone. Even the hucksters and charlatans.
I may have to pry mine open in the morning, but I will. Will you?
Name That Naturra!
Have you ever wanted to name a character in a novel? Here's your chance!
I need a name for Jonazat & Quinna's daughter (Jonquin's sister) for a new
