Contrasts, life presents –
focus on the light,
I tell myself,
eyes wandering to dark corners
been up against too many brick walls
to harbour simplicity in faith,
besides, darkness holds the light
we inevitably all follow.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

      1. When I went into my have my operation both my daughters said stay away from the light lol, I said I might just have a peak and they both said NO, I didn’t see any lights 🙄 I had my operation on Tuesday morning the first thing I remember was when they took the tube out on Wednesday morning ☺️ My mum definitely saw the light though before she passed, she opened her eyes and looked up into the corner of the room. 😇
