Lightly child, lightly.

light, hand, mitch-cullin

To pass from the inner light to the light of the sun was not the work of the senses. A click sufficed, a slight change in point of view, like turning one’s head a hundredth part of the circle. It was enough in the end to believe. The rest came by itself.

  1. A hundredth part of the circle!
    Yes, right there.

      Similar to a slight turn of a kaleidoscope, light exposing color, pattern and a new gift of perspective…the image you have shared makes me think of “…in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet…” 1 Corinthians 15:52 and “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” James 4:14 KJV

    this translation is from the New International Version (NIV) James 4:14 “Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”
