Sitting in the dark, I allowed darkness to be my teacher.
I am used to sitting in the dark at the chapel of Lions Gate. There I spent many days in the quite darkness of the hospital chapel instead of staying at the ward for having gone through the episode of the dark night of my soul.
No longer am I afraid of the days getting shorter and the nights longer for the coming of mystical winter solstice.
Soon after that, days will become longer again and there will be more light.
