Sunbeam Power

An insightful and poignant post from one of my followers. Perfect fare for a delightfully chilly Friday afternoon upon a point where Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana conjoin
Namaste, Terry!
Please enjoy.


“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.”

St. Francis of Assisi

I am alone in the room. I smile. A large window opens a view of my neighborhood on a 50-degree January day. Choosepeace, I tell myself while the news repeats horrors in a universally expected monotone.

A sunbeam appears. Winter-bare trees stretch rich, dark branches against stark cobalt blue. The light reaches into our ordinary living space. The sun’s intensity splashes inside.

Breathe me in, sunbeam seems to say. I won’t stay long. The briefness of my appearance does not negate my presence. Even as the darkness appears, remember my brilliance lives within you, too.

I am a former resident of Delhi Township. These are memories of my life and times in that community during the 1950s and 1960s. A time capsule.
