I realised a lot of life is like that. When communication starts to wane, lights are left on, but they leave a great many gray spaces. When one person wants to know and the other can't say, there are shadows. When no one shares, areas darken. When only a little is revealed, more is hidden.
Turning on a light isn't much, even if it is a start. Illuminate the unknown and brighten your world with a knowing. Talk to people. Don't leave them in low wattage. It isn't easy. I can attest to this. I have a horrid time talking to people about real things. It leaves one vulnerable. As vulnerable as being in twilight without a flash.
