Exploring Light

Catalinas: View from Sunset Canyon
Tucson, AZ
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings."
John Muir

One of our favorite common expressions is "I've seen the light". There is however a difference between seeing the light and studying it. The two are not mutually exclusive, but they are different. Under either scenario it requires a conscience choice. To be awakened your senses must be functioning.

By circumstance and by choice, I've seen the light and I've witnessed first hand the effects it has on the nearby mountain; how by the end of the day, it's long shadows cover blemishes and accentuates its form. Right at sunset, the majestic Catalinas, blush embarrassed by attention given by many mountain lovers.

Seeing the light is not enough. Even studying it is not enough nor is witnessing. What you do with that experience requires more that's why I share it with you.
