Alone in the Dark

Our eyes cannot see in the dark, but our ears certainly do their function. Our senses adjust in the lack of light, just like our hearing is more acute. When it is cold, blood has a tendency to stay in the core body, that is because the brain compensates body temperature and sacrifices the extremities in order to keep critical parts warm with the flow of blood. Being in the dark alone, may sound like a very bad thing, but it is not. Sometimes, it is necessary to be in the dark, to hear and think what we truly need. Life will be dark sometimes, it is up to us not to stay in the dark. Some people shine, they can dissipate those shadows; it is a natural gift that can be taught.
