Umbras of the Day #1688

Late in the morning my eyes were drawn to the comet-like shadows cast by the legs of the furniture. Something about how the soft light flowed in, grey and diffuse, made it more apparent that we are traveling around a nuclear fireball; I could imagine huddling behind a chair leg, sheltered from the blast, while waves of flame flawed past on either side of me.

I can’t grasp it, but scenes with light and shadow like this make it seem like every inanimate object is celebrating the physical laws it was written in, like the universe is glad to be here.

I’ll stay home forever
