Shine Enough Light

            All through life we protect ourselves from countless hurtful truths by being a little blind here - by ignoring the something trying to flag our attention on the outer edges of our peripheral vision, by being a little shortsighted there - by being a trifle too quick to accept the easiest answer, and by squinting our eyes against the bright, incoming light all of the time. Emerson wrote once that even a corpse is beautiful if you shine enough light on it.
