Cathy Johnson

  • If one is willing to adapt, the darkness offers a place to step beyond the known edge and explore, a place of silence and sound, a place both unpopulated and populous, filled with things we may not see by day.

  • Fire draws us like friendship. It fascinates us from our earliest experiences with its lovely light. It is beautiful and dangerous, seductive and comforting, frightening and useful. Of what else could we ask so much?
