Make Something New 09 – darkness

This creative prompt is somewhat vague โ€“ darkness. It may sound difficult at first, but this vagueness gives you a lot of creative freedom.

Remember that visually, darkness is the only way that we are able to perceive light โ€“ the whole yin and yang of realities.

I would love to be back in this place rather than having a pipe dug up from beneath my garage. ~sigh~ Where would you like to be?
