Chapter Readings: From the darkness into the light!
Chapter Readings is a series of events celebrating the beauty and significance of the written word, spoken aloud. Each month, an artist or a group of artists designs a literature-inspired reading created from a single theme or idea.
May 2019: Voices on the Bridge presents 'From the darkness into the light!'
There is no one size fits all where trauma experience is concerned – Nor is there one pathway for healing there are many – out of necessity we each seek our own path.
And healing takes time, time to heal in its own time – a clock that has its own rhythm - there is no one pathway from the darkness into the light!
Writing and poetry can be a pathway into the light – the door opens and the light – the light is always there – tho’ finding it might take time! And finding the light might reveal something we didn’t want to find.
A night when poets share the pathways of darkness and light!
“Every poet is an optimist… But on the way to that optimism ‘you have to reach a certain level of despair to deal with your life at all.'” – James Baldwin
