I see you through the darkness

I see you through the light Ever remember that song from the 90's with the chorus 'Sun shine on a rainy day'? I edited the words slightly when I sing them to myself. This song has been popping into my consciousness a lot recently. When I see this picture it reminds me of the poem by David Whyte. ..... THE WELL OF GRIEF Those who will not slip beneath the still surface on the well of grief, turning down through its black water to the place we cannot breathe, will never know the source from which we drink, the secret water, cold and clear, nor find in the darkness glimmering, the small round coins, thrown by those who wished for something else. ..... When I feel into grief, sadness, there is a strange sort of comfort that happens in the background. That by allowing myself to feel these emotions, I create a capacity for a depth of emotional range that also allows for elevated emotions such as joy and gratitude. The small round coins that David speaks about. Credit: photo from a woman in Britain's Great Trees Facebook group
