MAGIC SHADOW SHOW

 “For in and out, above, about, below, tis nothing but a magic shadow show played in a box whose candle is the sun, round which we phantom figures come and go”  ~~ Omar Khayyam


I know not my place in time.  Have I traversed the great white void, entered the shadows and emerged into the light where I meet the great I AM   

OR, am I spawned by the light, negotiating my way through the shadows to pristine peace, unencumbered with challenges behind and with contentment ahead?

Either way seems an acceptable destination.

  2. Either way seems acceptable. I say travel the path of light and leave your imprints in the crunchy snow.
