How funny it is for me to sit here and say that I was too young for the radio drama and comic book series about "The Shadow". But, I was (yay!).
You know, it does trigger a cascade of thoughts for me.
An absence of light, yet it seems to be 'something'. Dark and mysterious which appears to be complex. And yet, so simple. Even more so, enigmatic.
Fleeting, changing. There and yet not there.
How can it be?
The lovely red leaves you see here are courtesy of the Virginia Creeper on my wall. The shadow, courtesy of our bamboo.
I'm sure by now, you've already been thinking about those nights as a youngster making shadow hand puppets on the wall!
So, when you head out the door tomorrow, think about your shadow and try not to step on it! ; )
