Light behind letters


Here is light behind letters that turn into words and sentences and paragraphs and chapters and stories. Expressions of my life – or of yours.

That’s why I write. That’s what brings writers back to blank pages every day – the pursuit of illumination beneath letters.

Light behind letters speaks to me of Creation herself. Darkness and light. Something of light inscribed upon dark. Something dark frames light. One does not exist without the other.

As music needs silence to sound its aliveness, so the writer paints dark upon light or light upon dark and knows that there is a knowing.

Life behind the letters.
