People who have near death experiences all talk about a peaceful, euphoric , bright light enveloping them. From the moment we are conceived, we are moving towards that light. This is my heels diggin' in, I don't wanna' go, reluctant journey, into the light. Stephen
All photography, and writing on INTO THE LIGHT are done by me, unless otherwise noted. I prepare all the food in the "Food Chain," and eat it too. If I use your stuff without linking to it, you will be credited. Please do the same for me. Stephen

"Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform.

Yet, who shall speak for the oppressed? Loosen the muzzle of muteness. Nourish the embers of courage. Who shall hold the torch high, that others may find the path? The light is of the truth. Who among us will shout that truth without shame? Great is the man who sacrifices for the least amongst others. Are there none who will unsheath their sword and move forward past the appeaser? Who will be my brother?
