Light and Shadow

Photograph of silhouette

The pic above is my “Solstice Selfie,” take in December 2011. There’s something poetic about one’s shadow growing largest on the shortest day of the year. The sun forces us to witness our dark side. We are immersed in a culture obsessed with light and afraid of shadow. Counseling and therapy provide a safe place to examine one’s shadow side: parts of self we don’t see & don’t want others to see.
