    Sometimes whether we walk along a literal dark passageway, or an allegorical one, some deed we've done or about to do, we get a moment of clarity, perhaps enough to halt whatever we plan.

    At other times it may be Black Dog, or that we have allowed a coldness separate to the season to take hold. I hope that just like the seasons, it will pass too.
