I took this photo in Louisville some years back. I don’t remember the exact date. My friend John and I had been at his health club. He did yoga; I walked the treadmill. We came out to the aftermath of a storm and I got this photo of the moon appearing amidst clouds. In the darkness of the foreground, tree branches appear.
I posted the photo as my cover photo on Facebook a day or so ago. My friend Leslie observed, “Such darkness.”
She is right.
But as I looked at the photo and pondered her words it occured to me that while there is darkness, there is also the moon and the moonlight.
The darkness, profound as it is, cannot put out the light.
Indeed such darkness cannot even put out the reflection of the light.
