One of our dogs, as he grew older became afraid of lightning and thunder. Being in the living room with us in full light brought him no comfort. What he wanted was complete, silent darkness. It was the darkness that brought him comfort.
Western culture is filled with light. We have street lights so we can feel safer walking at night. Buildings advertise themselves with lights of all shapes and colors. We have night lights in bedrooms and bathrooms. We can have light 24/7.
But do we want so much light?
This little, FREE e-book, Words for Dark Time is a guide to take a look at ourselves and our deductions, judgments and criticisms about the dark. It encourages us to study not the light but the dark, to look at the fear and discomfort dark can and does bring and not turn away.
Just as my dog did, we need to learn the language of complete, silent darkness. Old Earth
