The light in the attic; the light at the end of the tunnel. The light at the top of the stairs. Light the match, light my fire. Light is the opposite of dark. Dark victory. Dark Knight. Night and Day. Day light. Light is the opposite of heavy. Heavy lifting. Heavy duty. Heavy, heavy, what hangs over? Over the hill. Over the falls. Fall asleep. Sleep deprived. Deprived of light. The light at the end of the tunnel. The Light in the Attic. Shel Silverstein—a favorite poem from his book Everything On It.
“When I am gone”
When I am gone what will you do?
Who will write and draw for you?
Someone smarter—someone new?
Someone better—maybe YOU!
Writers and artists bring light to our world. They illuminate reality. They help us to see more clearly. They enlighten us. Hey, Mr. Trump, let there be light.
