“the light that fills the world”

antler carving

And I think over again my small adventures
When with the wind I drifted in my kayak
And thought I was in danger

My fears,
Those small ones that seemed so big
For all the vital things
I had to get and to reach

And yet there is only one great thing
The only thing
To live to see the great day that dawns
And the light that fills the world.

—Anon. Inuit Song as Translated by Tegoodligak, South Baffin Island
