Looking out from a darkness of the heart, there is beauty to see. There is light, and green fields of happiness. There have been times, days, when all I've seen are the shadows of a dim room; times when it doesn't occur to me to pull back the shades and look beyond myself. Have you been there?


I would guess that most people have. But beyond the me of myself, there is so much more to discover !

I can't say that I have.
I'm a daydreamer and a lover of light.
I must go out, it makes me happy to wander and wonder :D

I have been there Allison and I think many people have been.
The idea is not to stay hidden in the shadows for long.'
Try to reopen the windows soon, so the light comes back in again.
Have a great evening.

Às vezes, me dá uma tristeza... então...

Que janela encantadora... tanto para admirar...

Beijos, querida.

When I first wrote this yesterday I thought, "What a depressing post...you can't leave that on your blog". But your comments have been so insightful and meaningful, that I am glad I posted it. You have blessed me. Cheers.
