"in each of us lie good and bad, light and dark, art and pain,
choice and regret, cruelty and sacrifice.
we’re each of us our own chiaroscuro, our own bit of illusion
fighting to emerge into something solid, something real.
we’ve got to forgive ourselves that.
i must remember to forgive myself.
because there is a lot of grey to work with.
no one can live in the light all the time."

Absolutely true... The difficult is to accept our dark side, the shadow inside of our soul.
I'll try to forgive myself too. :)

The light all the time would be even boring, stupidly boring.
I love the darkness from time to time.
And candles :) I love candles!
