[A Retrospective] A balancing act between lightness and darkness, a gravitational equilibrium on display. We express our sense of weight in terms of light. Perhaps it is easier to understand this heaviness we feel within ourselves when we can compare it to something we can see and understand. While the force of gravity has no opposite, the forces exerted upon us do have competitors…objects or ideas radiating with greater gravitas. We are drawn toward the heavens, feeling a lightness in our souls, climbing until, escaping the heavy shadows, we touch the sun. We soar into the light of day and leave our burdens below in the darkness. Our sense of balance restored with perspective.
