In these dark times, we try to see the light. It may be distant, a mere glimmer, but the laws of celestial bodies promise revolution; that light comes after dark.
If you choose to focus on the light that peeks out from the horizon, that is your choice, but I’m inviting you to explore the darkness with me.

Dark Before Dawn allows us to find comfort, even relish, in the frustration and anguish on the long road ahead of us.
