We make our own shadows...

In reality, a shadow is the projected image of a blocked light source. In a more abstract sense, a shadow is the darkness that results from the absence of light. In order for a shadow to exist, light and darkness must both be present. Remember Peter Pan....Once Peter's shadow is attached to him, it does not come to life until the lights are turned on. The light "awakens" the shadow. Although a shadow is dark, it is created by light..So never be afraid of a shadow...explore it..take it with you..Its YOU...You exist...isn't that just marvelous...

On the picture a brave little girl and her shadow..

On the playlist a Brave theme...have a great weekend out there on the globe..

Actually, Peter Pan's shadow is not "alive" at all. That's just an invention of Disney.

My last day of clerical work in my classroom was yesterday. I am having the Paris party and there are so many lovely links and comments that I attended to, but here I am to find this special little fairy.....our beloved little E.

I was thinking of you both this morning and hoping that every one is safe and well. My email is NOT WORKING, just this morning, giving me an ERROR message. I extend my friendship to you, hoping you are enjoying the shadows as well as the unblocked light that flows ever so gracefully on the Hilltop....BISOUS MON AMIE, Nita

I remember how lost Peter felt without his. I resolved never to lose my own.
