It's no surprise that I've been feeling like I've been sitting in the dark lately. Like I'm missing something. Lost something. It's been awhile. And I'm ready to begin the search in earnest.
As I've been sitting in the dark, I've been sitting criss-cross-applesauce in the middle of a room. Holding my little candle just waiting for a spark.
Perhaps my mistake is waiting. Just expecting someone, or something to come along with a lit match.
When maybe, what needs to happen, is that I need to find the spark within myself. I need to light the candle on my own.
How I will strike the match I don't yet know. But what I do know, what I absolutely know is that I want to try. I don't know if it will work, but I still want to try.
Because sitting in the middle of the darkness is getting old. And lonely. And sad. And this dark day has lasted too long.
It's time to light a Candle in the Darkness.
