So [hope] makes a home– David Gate #
In the deep shadows
Where it waits to be found
By those who need it most
Lately I’ve taken note of the melancholy songs who, in Wendell Berry’s words, “don’t disturb the stillness from where they came.” Maybe they’re nocturnal songs, who hide out in the shadows.
Ok, I honestly didn’t expect chills at my daughter’s choir concert. But one of the choirs brought Wood Pigeon’s …And as the Ship Went Down, and the energy of the moment was tangible. A pleading to keep going, and keep hoping.
If you’re walking in the dark right now, I hope you find the hope that’s waiting for you.
