Dark Moon is on my mind.
No matter what the light source, there is always a shadow.
I know, into the shadows is not a place people like to go, preferring to think, that with the stroke of a pen, a distraction, we can push those deep hurts, down deeper, or perhaps they will simply fade. Yet always they twist and rise to the surface, longing to be heard, to be felt, to be released.
The gloss of memes as they ride past our feeds, propping us up to feel better, when in reality, you could feel better without the memes, through meaningful connection and the depth of contribution a conversation requires.
As we hide loneliness, grief, and anger from others and self, this is the one night where you can deeply honor those that have gone before. Allow yourself to feel, feel deeply, the depths to which humanity has plummeted, own your part and acknowledge how deeply, you yourself have been hurt.
Acknowledge-own-make peace-let go.
Tomorrow we begin anew
In peace, strength and love.
