It’s difficult to write this in the light where every action can be seen. Every reaction measured. More aware of what’s around than what’s immediate.
The darkness hides this sense allowing others to take command. To lead. To discover.
Playing in the dark is why we enjoyed hide and seek. The surprise find. The build up to a moment’s release. The shock and gasp.
It sends us laughing and thrills shoot through us.
It’s both the fear and freedom only found in the dark.
