Embracing a New Light … Isle of Arran, Scotland


Today started on a very dark note — a serious family emergency that totally caught me off guard.

After a night of no sleep and wondering where the silver lining is to all this turmoil, I feel utterly exhausted. My eyes and heart are heavy; my focus almost non-existent.

This image, taken a couple of years ago while walking along a dusty lane near Broddick on the Isle of Arran, reminds me of what happens when the clouds part — the light is even brighter than before the clouds appeared. Have you ever noticed that? The clouds separate and the light bursts with seemingly renewed energy?

That’s what I’m hoping for those touched by this crisis – that they emerge from the shadow of this experience renewed and re-energized to embrace a new light; a new beginning.

As I’ve said before, I believe in silver linings …

Thanks for visiting …

Dorothy 🙂

  1. Dear Dorothy,

    Thanks for your insight. I’ve never really been able to live in the moment but that’s all I can do now. Just as you experienced it, too, my focus has been washed away – almost no short term memory. Yes, I hope a brighter day will come. I was told the first two weeks are the worst, then it’s just hard work, I guess.

    Teddy, Pepper, you and Janice are lighting up the darkness and retrieving me, damp and doubting debris that I am just now. I hope I can switch to positive mode and take each moment as it comes – no easy matter.

    Thanks so much for thinking of me!

    Your friend,

    Barb McTeddy

    • Hang in there, Barbara. My experience has been that every cloud has a silver lining. I think you will find this to be so if you keep an open heart and mind in light of what you’re experiencing right now. You know we’re all here for you … Love, D 😉
