The Golden Hour:
“In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer compared to when the Sun is higher in the sky.”
Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
~ Brené Brown
We went down into the silent garden.
Dawn is the time when nothing breathes,
the hour of silence.
Everything is transfixed,
only the light moves.
~ Leonora Carrington
Choose a place where you won’t do harm – yes, choose a place where you won’t do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.
~ E.M. Forrester
Fear can only grow in darkness. Once you face fear with light, you win.
~ Steve Maraboli
Love is not consolation. It is light.
~ Simone Weil
Light is more important than the lantern,
The poem more important than the notebook.
~ Nizar Quabanni
She was bendable light: she shone around every corner of my day.
~ Jerry Spinelli
The rose shadows said that they loved the sun, but that they also loved the dark, where their roots grew through the lightless mystery of the earth. The roses said: You do not have to choose.
