This back night, Iím absorbed by a single star its stark brightness overpowering my thoughts, obscuring all softer glows that possibly are reaching out to me. At the moment I canít see them but surely there are other supportive twinkles sparkling, but not with the intensity of this one spot light that is bearing, relentlessly down on me.

Normally luminosities lights from the heavens brings me to a place of peaceful awe but tonight the light is more like the menacing bulb swinging from the ceiling in a darkened, confined room assisting memories with false accusations.

This is the question that haunts me.

Why donít I look away from the light surely the pitch of the dark is preferable to the pain of a view so bright with facts, it blinds the truth?

I wish I had an adequate answer but I donít, so it is time for me to rise and move away from my inclusive thoughts and travel deep within where no light shines. It is safe here in this hollowed out place secured by doors that are deeply bolted into the jams of my hardened skin. Deep in the safety of this place Iím able to listen to kinder echoes from an inner voice, reverberating off of the walls that confine of my mind.

I see a paradox in that, Earlybird. We have to be willing to look into the light for enlightenment and it is, at times, more painful that living in the darkness that we have become accustomed to. Living in the darkness that we are accustomed to is comfrortable but the stagnation it inevitably causes eradicates growth. This can be a confusing journey, can't it?

Thanks dancr6 after reading and thinking about your response I wrote a poem that goes along with this post "Night Blindness" infusing your thoughts within it. Thanks for your thoughts, Earlybird
