A novel about monsters sounded like it’d hit the spot, and my interest had recently been piqued by word of the new title White Death, which boasted a cool looking cover that featured a gnarly sabre-tooth creature roaring from the darkness.

Be that light a poem, story, essay, song, painting, sculpture, or dance. By doing those things we assert that we are human beings and that we are free no matter what else is happening around us.
