Black Box

“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” Mary Oliver

We all want the bright and shiny, the new and flashy that attracts attention.

But sometimes the silence, the quiet is what we need.  When there is a void, we need to fill it from ourselves instead of looking externally.

The gift of darkness, of emptiness is painful but can allow for the greatest of creations in the null space they have left.
