From light, darkness

There’s no danger of it happening, I admit, but nonetheless I never want it said of me that: “He lit up the room whenever he walked in.” In fact, because I have removed most of the bulbs and fluorescent tubing from the ceiling above and around my desk, I like to think I’m bringing darkness where before there was light, tenebrae in lux lucet, both in a literal and a figurative sense.
