A ray of light.

He is a ray of light. Not sunshine — Sam’s light is more complicated than that. It comes from somewhere else, somewhere that is delicate and ferocious and vulnerable and courageous all at once. We don’t have a word for it in English either. I think the closest we can get is transcendent. That’s Sam, and the light he shines on his little corner of the world.
