1-into-the dakness

During the time I spent at Supreme Gallery Bucharest, from sunrise-to-sunset I took advantage of my hours here to peruse objects of desire, and browse through interior decoration books. Yet as soon as night came, I started to roam the lower rooms in search of new discoveries. By fate, or by chance, the electric power was temporarily shut down and that gave me just the excuse I needed to use the silver Biedermeier candle holders in my nocturnal expedition.

We are taught to be afraid and weary of the dark, and of the dangers that lurk into the darkness. But, with enough courage and determination, the best and most satisfactory discoveries are made beneath the shadows. Because it is in the dark where one comes across moral, and material treasures, such as a gorgeous Bernard Rohn brass footstool. And it is in the darkness where one cease to be the image he puts on for society, and while stumbling onto a Rococo mirror he sees his real self. So what if the real dangers aren’t waiting for us in the darkness, but are hiding in our very fear of exploring the dark in and around us?

Instead of opting to conclude with the usual inspirational sentence, indulge me while I end with a quote:

“When you have come to the edge of all the light you have
And step into the darkness of the unknown
Believe that one of the two will happen to you
Either you’ll find something solid to stand on
Or you’ll be taught how to fly!”

– Richard Bach –
