My Raven Companions

In life, I've come to recognize the natural flow of light and darkness, happiness and sadness, beauty and destruction, life and death—all the pairs of opposites. I no longer ask the questions—why death, why darkness? If I did, I would have to ask that very question for every moment of happiness and good fortune that comes my way. So instead, I embrace it all, remembering that without the shadows, there is no form. 

My raven companions have become my guides. With all their menacing, mystical symbolism, they remind me of the wisdom of shadows and all the iridescent light that is found within them.
