From shive to shiver is but a tiny step; and shivelight could so very easily be shiver-light too. There is something so magical and mystical in those pale lances of light, as to cause a shiver of awe and wonder within us.
During the summer especially, a woodland canopy can be so dense as to easily block out sunlight - and yet, shivelight somehow finds its way through; somehow, it finds and slices through even the slimmest of gaps. And there's something rather lovely and hope-filled about that. Our world currently feels very, densely dark, and our country's future dismal and despairing... and yet, as Leonard Cohen reminded us: There is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets through... And get through it does.
In today's gloom and darkness, where can we find and create the cracks which permit shivelight to get through, and cast its hope-bearing radiance?
