Moody…

  … and not in a good way… We are currently in the middle of the first snow of our season. I’ve just come in from the first shoveling of said snow… It’s now after sunset, and unless I turn on some lights… “What are you trying to do, light up the entire neighborhood when I was your age we had to shovel snow 5 miles uphill both ways what were you raised in a barn somebody better start turning off some lights when they leave the room or there’s gonna be a whole lot of unhappy people around here come Christmas…” *ahem* I say, the snow isn’t scheduled to stop until around midnight, so it there’s anything worth taking a photo of, I’ll get it in the morning… Meanwhile, a picture with some sunlight in it… Even if it is a moody light…         Advertisements

Assuming that I’ve spoken truthfully, it’s doubtful anyone would even disagree with me. At that point, my opinion might be widely considered to have traversed over into the realm of ‘fact’. “But can you imagine a quality of light so intense, a mode of illumination so pure, that the brightest light you can think of would be as the darkest night in some other realm? “Can you see it in your mind’s eye – another mode of existence, in which the heart of our sun might leave that existence blind, from a lack of light? Imagine such a concept of darkness, which would limit our perception to the reading of a body’s internal chemistry, or the enumeration of atoms… or the making visible of that about which we now can only speculate. “What would such an intensity of sight …
