Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




When all seems hopeless
Sometimes the faintest flicker
Gives the greatest light

In response to Sylvain Landry’s SL-WEEK 39: Candle

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path. Awards: While I am grateful and honored for the numerous nominations, I don’t have time to respond to them with the attention they deserve, so for the most part, I am an award free blog.

  11. Mmmmm… lovely!

    Even in a space bathed with light, it may be that flicker to which our attention is best given. It has a way of calling to us.
