It is not in the absence of loss that beauty exists but rather it is in the presence of light. The leaves fall. The grass begins to droop. Creation is tired. Yet there is beauty.
I took this picture several years back and ended up using it together with the words above for some cards I had made up. The words continue to be true for me as I journey through life.
Hard times come. Difficult and challenging circumstances continue on. Sometimes it is hard to see beyond the darkness.
This image has dying grasses, dark shadows and fallen leaves but we're not left with an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness after viewing this. Why? Because there is light.
