Ducks in the dark

If you’re not familiar with the place you find yourself, then darkness can be unnerving.

So walking around the lake in the deepening twilight, I realise that the sounds and shapes are familiar. At least to me, but they might not be for you.

Our journeys can be like this. We thought we were ready and then found ourselves in the dark.

You could not have known
You needed
To illuminate
Your way.

Excerpt from John O’Donohue’s blessing For the Traveller

In this time of unknowing for all of us, maybe we need a different kind of light.
