Luminescence is spontaneous emission of light by a substance not resulting from heat; or “cold light”. It is thus a form of cold-body radiation. It can be caused by chemical reactions, electrical energy, subatomic motions or stress on a crystal.
May the divine reactions in our souls emite glorious light to all those we encounter today.
Last evening as we sat on the balcony luxuriating in the lush autumn sun, a flock of Canada geese lifted off the lakeside, dwarfing us mere mortals. If they had pooped we would have been entombed in white slime, not unlike Lot’s wife entombed in salt.
Like her, we look back at the past year which feels like an onslaught of geese poop. We’ve been children hiding behind our ego forts, desperately heaving giant poop balls at the “winter of our discontent.”
How we long to hitch a ride on the backs of Canada geese and head for their homeland where, of course, life is greener… always greener on the other side.
Lest we meet the fate of one who looked back, we turn setting out ready to grow our own green grass.
