At 5pm, my office window looks onto nothing but blackness.
In these so short days, I can easily slide into seeing nothing but darkness.
A favorite song for decades, I’m reminded of Cat Steven’s Moonshadow.
The simple light melody tells the ultimate silver lining story.
“And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if I won’t have to work no more.”
So on the week of the Winter Solstice, I’m allowing myself to be followed by a moonshadow.
Even the darkest of days aren’t only dark.
Listen to Moonshadow here. Maybe put it on Repeat.
