blackbird



An eskimo tale explains the origin of light thus: "The blackbird could not find food in the eternal night and he desired light, and the earth lit up." If there is true desire, if the object of desire is truly light, the desire for light produces light.

  4. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good.

    Beautiful picture - we've been seeing a lot of the absence of (sun)light lately, eh? Must be time for the Rose Festival!

  5. Even with light, we could still be in the dark, as light itself is blinding.... ~bangchik

  6. A Sicilian tale explains the origins of magic thus: The mockingbird could not find magic in the eternal night and she desired magic, and the earth opened up and a triangular coin appeared in her palm.
