The Darkness Within

“Every one is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody” ~ Mark Twain

This months theme was based on Florence & The Machine's Shake it Out.
For reasons I don't think I need to outline this song is particularly special to me and obviously many others. I think I can completely relate to Urban Muser's feelings here, summing up a long and arduous personal journey leading to little or no avail.

I myself have finally given up on my 6yr TTC fight while relenting to the fact that some things are just not worth beating yourself up over.

She left pieces of her life behind her everywhere she went.
It's easier to feel the sunlight without them, she said.

Shaking out the darkness today at {in the picture}'s April linky party.

I needed to hear that song this morning, and I didn't even know it. I'd never seen the video before--really cool. Thanks for posting it.

Love your photos.
And your words about shaking out the darkness - so powerful.
Thanks for stopping by my world and leaving such kind comments.

Florence speaks for me through so many of her songs (she will be down your way next month I think) - she is but one of the artists who make up the musical that is my life. The ttc thing sucks (just remember, it is still supposed to be fun trying, even if you don't get what you want from it), but maybe in shaking it off something will show up where you least expected. <3
