"The dark today leads into light tomorrow;
There is no endless joy,
...and yet no endless sorrow."
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox (American poet and writer 1850-1919)
The path leads into a dark tunnel. Though
short and the end easily seen, the tunnel is still dark. No one can see details in the dark. No one can see someone hidden in the corners or potholes on the path or obstacles in the way. The blazing bright light of a hot summer day only deepens the darkness ahead. Ironic? Not really. A light from without enhances the darkness; only a light from within dispels it.
