Shadows and Light

by luciditewriting

Castillo de San Cristóbal is an old Spanish fort, built in 1539 to protect the city of San Juan (Puerto Rico) against attacks by competing colonial powers. It is now part of the U.S. National Park Service, and welcomes tourists to walk the grounds and duck in and out of the fort’s many nooks and crannies. Seeking refuge from the 2 o’clock sun, we spent some time in this dark, cool hallway, watching the light spill in from around the corner. Possibility, excitement, challenge, future.
