    “There are no shadows in darkness. Shadows are created by light, and only exist in the presence of light. Refusing to acknowledge our shadow leads us to deny the presence of light in us.” Franco Santoro

    I want to say something equally as profound, but I find I am lacking the words – I instead will give tribute to a fine and sensitive person, someone whose vision is as delicate and thoughtful as her creations, and indicates a wealth of experiences, some better than others, but whose light shines as brightly in her as her shadows are as deep.
    Many hugs,

  • You’ve brought tears to my eyes with your wonderful and sensitive comment…in fact…YOU have left me speechless! I am beyond grateful for all your support….and all the times you have made me laugh during some dark times in my life. I don’t know what else to say…except this…we are BOTH speechless, a miracle! ( or are we? Judging from the length of my reply….not all THAT speechless!)…and a huge thank you and an even bigger hug!
