QOTD #26 - On darkness and light

This one struck me for a whole lot of reasons, not the least because a week of widespread loss across much of the U.S. ends with that same country just a few days shy of sending a small team of heroes off the face of the planet. Tragedy followed by triumph: It's comforting that life always seems to find a way to prevail. Go Endeavour: you carry so much more than mere cargo.
"I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars."
Og Mandino
(And what of Will and Kate's Excellent Royal Wedding Adventure? Dispense with the royal over-the-top-ness - commemorative his-and-hers tea-stirrers, anyone? - and you have a young couple starting their life together. At the end of the day, that's the only thing that matters. Much happiness to them both.)

I love this attitude Carmi, one of choosing life. And that's what we have to do, affirm life at all times, especially when we least feel like it.

Thanks for reminding me of Og Mandino. It's been a long time.

Managed to get a photo of the happy couple ....... Only joking I admit it its a doctored photo. Cute picture non the less :)).

I do wish the Royal couple the best for their marriage though and every one else who embarks on the joy of a relationship.
