Shadows: The places between darkness and light
“Look round and round upon this bare bleak plain, and see even here, upon a winter’s day, how beautiful the shadows are.
Alas! It is the nature of their kind to be so.
The lovliest things in life are but shadows, and they come and go, and change and fade away…”
– Charles Dickens
“The Sun never knew how wonderful it was until it fell on the wall of a building.”
Louis Kahn, Architect
