We begin life much the opposite of dark stars- a shining, vibrant mix of colours in the foreground celebrating our arrival.

We can choose to progress down such an illuminated path, keeping the shadows trailing behind us.

It’s not so simple sometimes, however.

The vibrant colours can get too bright, blinding us, causing us to stray from the illuminated path ahead of us- allowing the shadows to catch up with us. Like an old friend.

Then we become much the opposite of the shining foreground we started out as and blend in with the background where the shadows lurk.

Eventually we descend into a mirrored reality where colours exist in the background and shadows in the foreground.

Like silhouettes.
