My post for this challenge back in November of 2013 showed a setting sun, an explosion of light over the water.
The photos I have chosen for this prompt a second time round show that where there is light there is also darkness. Not only is this true in a physical sense but also in a metaphorical one. As Martin Luther King Jr said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
As a memoirist this quote by Brené Brown appealed to me. “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
