Poster of the Week – Light

Hi all, this week theme is Light. Light, besides its definition as wavelenghts or photons in scientific terminology, it has been a symbol of goodness as well as guidance to the correct path, especially during the time of darkness. The symbolic meaning of light being the goodness and guidance is a common metaphor of good or evil, as written in Wikipedia. I’ve chosen the words from Eleanor Roosevelt, the first lady of US from 1933 – 1945, “It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness”. From my own interpretation, the quote asks us to try to solve the problem instead of keep blaming for the situation/problems. In other words, we shall all be optimistic and energized when problems arise, instead of being pessimistic and demotivated.
