Dear Shadows, I have come to appreciate you. Without you, there would be no light. Light has become a major part of who I am. In my photographs, in my thoughts, in my life. The shadows are where the truth lies. The light and the dark. The balance. The root. The core. Where new ideas are born. Where the courage lies. Where strength grows. Where we become alive. Where we find ourselves. The parts that are shown and hidden. The words that resonate inside of me. Our foundation. The ebb and flow. I am glad you exist. You are my twin. That walks beside me and reminds me I still have much living to do.
