Rage, rage against the dying of the light!

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Dylan Thomas, 1951 or 1952

I am reminded of this famous poem “Do Not Go Gentle” by Dylan Thomas after visiting a relative currently engaged in a major battle versus the big “C.”

    Whoever it may be – I am so sorry… (I can emphatize with the feeling you had at the moment you were viewing the dying light, it makes the photos all the more poignantly beautiful)

  2. Thank you, Ding for the sentiments. Life goes on…
