{the shadow proves the sunshine}

I've been listening to this song a bit lately, from an album I'd kind of forgotten about and haven't heard in a few years, but which I used to leave on repeat in the car for days and months on end. It was good for long solo trips, one of those CDs that as a whole felt quite sad and heavy, but hopeful and meaningful at the same time.

This is the kind of sadness that is actually startlingly beautiful - the kind that's not empty or worthless. A shadow that isn't only the absence of light, but also evidence of it.
