A Moment of Light

There’s a part in Annie Dillard’s book “The Living”  where she writes about a small plant growing out of the side of a deep well.  It can grow because once a day a stream of sunlight touches that one spot in the side of the otherwise dark well.

Since reading that, years ago, I often think of those dark places the sunlight touches for just a short time, and how sometimes, only that which is affected by it “knows” about it.

This morning I saw the sun light up an old piece of string hanging in a space between the barn door. I knew the light wouldn’t last long.  It was when a slight breeze rocked the string in that small space, that I thought to take a video.
