In life there is both light and darkness

Today I woke up feeling low and emotional. 'What heavy shell my body is', I thought. A poem by Rainer Maria Rilke spoke clearly to me, so I decided to record it... because human life consists of both light and darkness, day and night.

I find that if I embrace the somber side, I eventually allow more space for the bright side. And sometimes the low feelings are strong sparks of creativity.
