I made a tweet for July 2013 a few days ago. It is about some words that appeared in my head a few days before that. I was on a long walk when the setting sun reminded me the power of light and dark.
On the subject of light and dark, I’ve had trouble with dichotomies over the years. Everything that’s black or white,
got or cold, gay or straight, and so on has always appeared to be a spectrum to me, with unattainable absolutes at the ends. The same words that told me to let light guide me and darkness define me, also told me that I have to become comfortable with the concepts that trouble me, one of them being absolutes.
Here’s to your independence on this day. Remember: everyone is talented, original, and has something important to say.
