“Perhaps the wisdom of blinking is that it keeps us in the middle, keeps us from drowning in the dark and burning up from the light. Perhaps this is the reflex that lets us make sense of being human.”– Mark Nepo

 I love this quote… some call it the “gray area”…Mark calls it blinking. Life isn’t all mountain top experiences nor is it all dark, dank, and dreary. It is that place we have our sea legs placed firmly on the ground, so when the waves of life come crashing in on us, we can hold on until the waters calm again. It is that knowing you have been here before and this too shall pass…just hang tight.

I have learned to accept both the dark and the light in life. I just simply walk hand in hand with them both…knowing I’m right where I’m suppose to be. If I didn’t experience the dark…I wouldn’t recognize the beauty of the light.
