Light and Life
"Light and Life are interchangeable. Where there is Light there is Life. And where there is Life there is Light.

Sometimes, we try to block out the sunlight with curtains and blinds, but it's still there shining on the other side. We have dark, cloudy, and stormy days, too, but the sun is shining right there on the other side of all that. For those who miss it when it's dark often, it can be difficult for them to believe that it's still there and not even very far away.

When we were walking along in the dark evening of what had been a cloudy day, the emergence of these near-blinding sunbeams sent me reeling backwards in complete and utter awe. They seemed so surreal!

Out of nowhere, I can learn and relearn lessons in Life! And by "relearn" I sometimes mean learn them better, like the next chapter of the same subject. :nod:

Life is more than the day to day nose-to-the-grind stone. If we're paying attention, Life is full of Light- which is all that is inspiring, energy, positive, hopeful, helpful, creative, loving, kind, and aspiring, too! It's sparkling and magical, even!

And if we're NOT paying attention, sometimes Life will give you a bit of a push- because a push is what I got THAT day! :lol:
And I was grateful. Life truly is Light." :aww:

I am sooo sorry, I wish I had known sooner. :hmm:
I really am always so honoured am humbled if and when anyone might feature me! :nod:

But sometimes I have a very difficult time keeping up on dA, and there are comments that get back-logged, and I don't get to them for a long time, and it's regrettable when they are comments about features!

Again, I am so truly sorry about that, and I so do appreciate that you would be so kind and generous as to feature me. :nod: :hug:

I love the life and soul of this photograph. The light from the sun is so warm and peaceful, it's like a romantic story waiting to be told.
I think this is spectacular, the way you've managed to capture the sun seeping through, and the whole composition of this photograph is wonderful. Very good work :clap:
