[Through The Darkness]
When I just got to La Push at about six o'clock in the evening after a very long drive through the Olympic National Park, it was covered in fog. I went to a small restaurant at the edge of the sea and asked about the weather of the place. “Oh it's usually like that,” said a waitress. “But it should start to clear at about half past six,” she added nonchalantly. I waited in the numbing sea wind, hoping. When this really happened in such a mystical way at the exact time, I thought she was an angel in disguise. Sometimes when gloom is all around, remember: “The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness cannot overpower it.” (La Push, Washington US, 2002) [The Sound of Light]
Every journey that a person makes is actually a journey to his or her heart. These harvests of light were done during the moments of my journeys abroad and locally when I experienced something more than what meets the eye. The beauty of nature, light in glorious splendour, the light of joy, the light within, without the light. At times luminous, at times ominous, it is something mystical and wonderful to behold. Perhaps sometimes it speaks to us.
