THE GEM 25 AUGUST 2014
– Saul Bellow Henderson The Rain King, ch.3.
“Time and again the sun sets like a bedimming curtain before my eyes, taking with it all illumination, warmth, and colour. I am overwhelmed by night and the monsters that lurk in shadows of despair. But alas, stars twinkle from afar, shedding the tiniest rays of lighted hope. I am reminded that the sun also rises, and that morning’s glory shall restore beauty to my world. The realization of this dream is only a matter of waiting out the dreary night. So, I shall persevere.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich
