sometimes it’s all about the shadows. shades of gray. nuance.
sometimes the thing you’re looking for is right there in front of you but you just don’t see it because it is in the shadow of something else in your life.
sometimes, you have to look at the shadow to see the true shape of something.
sometimes the shadow is more beautiful than the original. or bigger.
sometimes the shadow tells an entirely different story.
you can play with the shadow. you can fight it.
but you can’t move away from the shadow, it’s attached. it tethers you to the ground.
it adds dimension. it makes you real.
it cries when you cry, laughs when you laugh.
it dances when you dance.
but when you turn around, it’s gone.
