Me and My Shadow

Wherever there is light, look for the shadow. The shadow is me.” – Anais Nin

Steps and me

Every man carries with him through life a mirror, as unique and impossible to get rid of as his shadow.” – W.H. Auden, The Dyer’s Hand

Bridge walkway and me
Shadows over the Tyne

Most of the shadows of this life are caused by our standing in our own sunshine.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Posing with a pig
Dappled leaves on steps and me
Dappled shadows

How can I be substantial if I do not cast a shadow? I must have a dark side also if I am to be whole.” – C.G. Jung

Bent fence by Ouseburn and me
Beside the river Ouse
Rubbish in the river and me
Contemplating reflections and rubbish

No matter how hard you fight the darkness, every light casts a shadow, and the closer you get to the light, the darker that shadow becomes.” – Plato

Bottle and Me
Caught in my own shadow
Steps outside Baltic and me
Mounting the Baltic steps

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The latter procedure, however, is disagreeable and therefore not popular.” – C.G. Jung
