Generous Light (President's Message) (Column)

A sleepless night or early morning awakening is gifted by nature with an encounter of a new dawn. John O’Donohue’s beginning paragraph in his book “Anam Cara”–describes it so well and is worth repeating here to share–Thus–LIGHT IS GENEROUS “If you have ever had occasion to be out early in the morning before day breaks, you will have noticed that the darkest time of night is immediately before dawn. The darkness deepens and becomes more anonymous. If you had never been to the world and never known what a day was, you couldn’t possibly imagine how the darkness breaks, how the mystery and color of a new day arrive. Light is incredibly generous, but also gentle. When you attend to the way the dawn comes, you learn how light can coax the dark. The first fingers of light appear on the horizon, and ever so deftly and gradually, they pull the mantle of darkness away from the world.”
