...and the sun will set for you

"Maybe this is what grace is, the unseen sounds that make you look up. I think it's why we are here, to see as many chips of blue sky as we can bear...to notice flickers of the divine, like dust notes on sunbeams in your dusty kitchen. Without all the shade and shadows, you'd miss the beauty of the veil. The shadow is always there, and if you don't remember it, when it falls on you and your life again, you're plunged into darkness. Shadows make the light show."
