When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I love this quote, and as a writer, the moment in time when my characters are in the midst of their black moment and then, suddenly, see a star shining in the darkness.

I’ve been caught in the middle of a black hole in my own life as of late. I’m sure we’ve all experienced times in our lives when things have looked so bleak and hopeless that we couldn’t imagine we would ever find our way out of the darkness that had descended around us.

But I’ve learned that even in the darkest hour, there is beauty to be found…

A beacon of light…

A splash of color…

Some thing, some one to light our way in the darkness.

So next time, you’re lost in the night

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d311/d635/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

With nary a crumb to follow…

Next time you’re so far, far from home

https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d324/d686/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

You think you’ll never find your way back…

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d201/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel…

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d202/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

A glimmer of hope in the night…

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d204/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Always remember that no matter how vast the night, no matter how impenetrable the darkness may seem…

Daybreak is always just around the corner.

https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d206/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Light cannot be hidden for long…

https://i0.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d312/d635/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Daybreak… hope…. love… joy…

https://i1.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d207/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Always triumph in the end.

Without the dark of midnight…

https://i2.wp.com/media-files.gather.com/images/d209/d687/d745/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg

Daybreak wouldn’t be nearly so beautiful.
