“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
― Albert Schweitzer
When sparks fly between people, there is a palpable, kinetic connection.
I’m not talking about the spark of romance, but the spark between kindreds.
When you meet someone and there is a mutual affinity, kind of a mutual recognition.
This can also happen when you come into contact with someone’s body of work, such as a work of art, a movie, or a book.
When this happens, stay alert to what ideas, feelings, thoughts or actions are sparked. Especially if you’ve felt cold, or numb, your own inner flame dim.
What and who rekindles your flame? It’s good to remember this, so you can draw upon these resources when you need them.
For me, I can always count on poetry and paintings to revive my spirit. So I’m very grateful to all poets and painters, everywhere, who dare to work their particular kind of magic.
