Some of your light shines bright and warms that moment in time and those who share it with you. Some of your light might pierce the ground and burn its nutrients away. Some of your light may hide behind obstacles spreading shadow and doubt upon the path you tread. And some of your light might enhance the road allow you to see more clearly. Continue reading
