whistle in the dark

“To whistle in the dark is more than just to try to convince yourself that dark is not all there is. It’s also to remind yourself that dark is not all there is, or the end of all there is, because even in the dark there is hope.

Even in the dark you have the power to whistle. And sometimes that seems more than just your own power because it’s powerful enough to hold the dark
back a little.

The tunes you whistle in the dark are the images you make of that hope, that power . . .” Frederick Buechner

Frederick Buechner says the best things.

Oh, word verification is fable. How cool.
