Into the Light

In Italian “to give birth” is “dare alla luce,” literally “to give to the light.” This lovely turn of phrase captures the wonder and awe that can be inspired by the emergence of something new, whether the arrival of a new life or a piece of artwork or an idea that flows out of you in the form of a poem. And there is just as frequently a moment before this emergence of breaking, ending, or of things falling apart. Lets hold both sides of this coin together, just as we hold and care for each other, and explore what it means to be a people of emergence.
