Light from darkness

Light from Darkness, today's #watercolor, 5 x 7

"Light from darkness."
This is for those who fought against tyranny and hatred and lies in this week's election, and who won, and especially those who lost--but you did not fail.
You bring light into the world when it is needed most. Thank you for your courage and hope and integrity, against all odds. Light always defeats darkness.
From Rumi-
  • "In a night full of pain and darkness, be a candle spreading light until dawn."
  • "Life's waters flow from darkness, Search the darkness, don't run from it."
  • "The wound is the place where light enters you."
