eclipse of the heart

As we anticipate the upcoming total solar eclipse, let's take a moment to contemplate the profound metaphor it presents for the grief and sorrow we encounter during life's most challenging moments – an eclipse of the heart. The overwhelming emotions of grief cast a deep shadow over our lives, enveloping us in darkness. Yet, much like an eclipse, the darkness gradually recedes, allowing light to reemerge. This light symbolizes the enduring love in our hearts for those we have lost. Just as the eclipse gives way to the returning light, so too does grief gradually diminish, enabling the brilliance of cherished memories and the love we shared with our departed loved ones to once again shine through.  Even in our darkest moments, a glimmer of light persists on the horizon, reminding us that hope is never truly extinguished. This serves as a powerful message of resilience and optimism in the face of adversity. By carrying this light with us always, by sharing our stories, honoring legacies, and allowing our hearts to shine, we discover meaning within the darkness.

Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul. - Victor Hugo
