It’s not as if you can always count on the sky to let you peek through the clouds. Sometimes they stand in the way of our own shadows. And while we tell ourselves differently, we really aren’t all that obsessed with daylight anyway.
It’s the nighttime that changes everything. The time when we surrender every reminder of every falsehood that props us up. And those moments of sweet release can drive out a covetous grace. Even if we find ourselves lying again come morning.
Maybe we shouldn’t be so afraid of the dark after all.
