“There is no ongoing spiritual life without this process of letting go. At the precise point where we refuse, growth stops. If we hold tightly to anything given to us, unwilling to let it go when the time comes to let it go or unwilling to allow it to be used as the Giver means it to be used, we stunt the growth of the soul…”

Gods goodness to me last week- first week of student teaching, having a korean barista make a heart latte for me, and first sunrise after Easter.
I used to question my identity like “was I ever meant to be?”
Infested with the sentiment of severing my destiny
I always thought I had a purpose but I never saw it
I always thought I had a meaning but I never sought it
Camaraderie is hardly a commodity
When trust is your “issue,” your “volume” and novelty
Fought to guard my secrets. I don’t want your peace.

"Three things I know about you:
God has ransomed you. You are His. He calls you by name.
God doesn’t change. His mind is made up regarding you.
The strongest thing in the universe, is the grip that God has on you."

This digital project by Paris-based photographer Thierry Cohen is an imaginative tale about how urban landscapes might appear if we turned out all of the lights. In a big city glowing with street lamps, store signs, car headlights, and rows of illuminated apartment buildings, it’s almost impossible to see the stars in the sky. One project review says, “Atmospheric and light pollution combine to make looking into the urban sky like looking past bright headlights while driving.”
To bring a sense of nature back into these environments, Cohen has taken a bit of a scientific approach. He travels to places free from light pollution and captures the skies that rotate on the same axis as the urban skylines. Those same skies that were at some point visible above the cities are then superimposed into the darkened cityscapes.
The result is Darkened Cities, Cohen’s project in which cold, dark, and desolate cityscapes sit below these atmospheric wonders overhead. In a sense, Cohen is bringing a forgotten nature back into these places. His darkened landscapes are a frightening visual of what it might look like if a city had to be completely shut down. His images are a reminder of the magical beauty of nature and through this project, he encourages viewers to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and to appreciate—most importantly, not take for granted—the natural world around us.
