Cave … Sunshine

Posted by VERITAS
Writing in my room, facing its parable-of-the-cave, smoked glass windows, I think of an image I’ve often imagined – of my mother standing in bright sunshine, dressed and appearing, in age, as though we had just emerged from a Sunday morning church service when I was a child, her face smiling in the sun as though she were finally on the verge of seeing things as they truly are …

One of her favorite Bible verses was from First Corinthians:

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
