Chapter Three : LIGHT

                                                      Light showers our world with color and illuminates everything we see.  But it can also be fickle: thin and pale one moment

                                                      and in the next, profound.  It can be seductive, playful, and yes, at times utterly maddening.  Happily, ours is a world

                                                      where the light is ever-changing, and that, precisely, is its incomparable gift.
