“The shadow is the seat of creativity.” – Carl Jung
I am captivated by this image — Approaching Shadow by Fan Ho (1956-2012)
A woman basking in the sun, the shadow beckoning.
Each of us has a shadow self.
An unconscious piece of ourselves.
Some traits are negative, others positive.
We mostly try to avoid it.
But we can’t.
Because the shadow is us.
Ignore your shadow, and it will engulf you.
Walk into and understand it, and you’ll find yourself
back in the sun.
