In the Garden of Shadows and Light

In the Garden of Shadows and Light

Have you ever talked back to the darkness? Perhaps even breathed into it. The light is just on the other side. It is through traversing the wild and untamable landscape of darkness that we can have a better understanding of our polarity. We become Warriors of Light by befriending the Dark.

“I have learned things in the dark that I could never have learned in the light, things that have saved my life over and over again, so that there is really only one logical conclusion. I need darkness as much as I need light.” ~ Barbara Brown Taylor, Learning to Walk in the Dark

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Yup, this is truly my favorite time of the year and I’ve been enjoying it thoroughly. Wishing you and yours a most wickedly awesome Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve and Samhain!

On this Hallows’ eve
The tricksters are out to play.
Light your candles and
Dance with the shadows!

The Halloween Tarot made it’s appearance…

Jenn Grosso – Day 303 of 365 Picture A Day Project’Tis now the very witching time of night,

When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
~ William Shakespeare

“How else could it have occurred to man to divide the cosmos, on the analogy of day and night, summer and winter, into a bright day-world and a dark night-world peopled with fabulous monsters, unless he had the prototype of such a division in himself, in the polarity between the conscious and the invisible and unknowable unconscious?” ~ Carl Jung

“Tom Skelton shivered. Anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night, and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallows’ Eve. Everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet. Smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades. From kitchen windows drifted two pumpkin smells: gourds being cut, pies being baked.” ~ Ray Bradbury, The Halloween Tree
