Lighting up the dark!
My morning view is darker and darker as we approach the Winter Solstice. I am grateful for light and shadow, the myriad human inventions that allow me to stay dry, illuminate the darkness, feel safe and cozy. I reflect on my deep animal nature, my connection to the seasons, what is buried deep within - my longing to sit in communion with my kin around a fire at night. And, I wonder what life would be like without this iPad that brings some kind of shared experience beyond these walls, without the Christmas lights on my tree, without the gas heater pumping downstairs, without the windows that block the rain and wind yet allow me to watch the sunrise?
#AD | 'The moon was shining sulkily...' We had the most magical evening @spectacleoflight last night which was Alice in Wonderland themed - this moon installation took my breath away!
Are you planning to go this year? You can read all about our visit in my latest blog post (link in bio). Thank you to @sudeleycastle for inviting us to visit free of charge.
The amount of pride this little guy had over Hanukkah was crazy Inspiring! Whether he knew the meaning or not, the excitement he had to light the candles and sing songs each night lit up my heart! He insisted on lighting the candles by himself, but it wasn’t until the second night that we let him hold the candle alone. He rocked it! He was careful and slow....to give a three year old trust to hold a candle and then light other candles, is not an easy task, but we watched him carefully, warned him of all the dangers and he took them very seriously. I know this is only the first of MANY times we will have to trust this little nugget in potentially scary situations, but this was definitely good practice. Happy eighth night of hannukah! May you hold on to this light through the rest of the winter and this year! #hannukah#proud#8days#light#lightupthenight#bigboy#growingup#glow#channukah#holiday#jewish#love#trust#nugget
#winterglow#grandpark#thenet#neonnetwork from high above the historic Grand Park Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain, strut or dance through a sensational network of colorful neon Ray's that create an awesome tunnel of light extending from the fountain overlook at the top of the stairs, down to the upper pool of the fountain. The exciting nature of the installation is further heightened by unique visual projections by artist, illustrator, and art director Hannah Stouffer, represented by H+ Creative. #dtla#christmastimeinthecity#lightupthenight
I was nervous to go to the company party last night- I didn't know if friends would be there, or if I was just gonna sit by myself like a dork. But I'm so glad I went (and convinced @thatellergirl to go with me too!). It's always wonderful to hang with my favorite vintage cutie @jetagejane. ❤
