  3. β€œI will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.” – Og Mandino

    Lovely poem! There is something about the juxtaposition of light and darkness. For all the negative implications of darkness, enduring darkness makes the light so much more luminous and joyful. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you so much for your meaningful words… the quote too was really beautiful! πŸ‘Indeed, we need to look within ourselves and truly appreciate the beauty this life and good relationships offer us. And then can we hope to be an inspiration to others… β˜€οΈπŸ˜€

    • That’s a nice interpretation, Sarah! Yes, it’s so interesting to read others’ views and how they see things in their own circumstances, right? Thanks so much for stopping by, really glad to hear from you. Have a lovely day, my friend! 🎢 πŸ“Έ 🎨

  8. This poem spoke to me. Pandora the role I’m playing opened the bottle without realising the darkness inside and trouble she awakened.

    • Glad this resonated with you, Charlotte. Good to hear from you and best wishes for your theatre roles. Saw an adaptation of “Iolanthe” recently, and it was well performed and hilarious! Have a great weekend! πŸ˜€


  9. Eloquently written and full of truth, Iris! πŸ˜€ Often we search desperately outside ourselves for light and clarity… rather muddling along instead of taking the time to look within!

  10. Dear Iris,

    Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
    Everything we need is inside us – the light and sound, treasures of our Selves that needed to be lifted from the depth of our being, to discover that we are all One in the One.

    All the best, my friend πŸ™‚
    Hope you are fine.
