More light...


This Spring I find myself more mindful of the warmth and energy the sunlight seems to be infusing into my very being. In the past I've welcomed Spring with a tip of the hat or a passing glance but this year is different. This year I find myself embracing the season, breathing it in deeply and radiating it's sense of renewal. When Chuck and I were dating (long, long ago) we were hooked on the quirky 90's show Northern Exposure. Over the past few months we have been working our way through each season on DVD with the kids and they have fallen in love with Cicely, Alaska and all of it's characters too. Over the weekend we watched one of my favorite episodes about the Winter Solstice and 24 hours of constant darkness entitled "Northern Lights". If you have a minute or two check out the ending which is an homage to light, art and community.
Have a lovely day...

loving the vibe I find here,
embracing Spring as she smiles
with her enchanting light.
(i remember that show...inspired by the female lead, I cut my hair wildly short. myself. which turned out to be a mistake:))

Sounds like a good way to spend some time together as a family. It's been years since I watched Northern Lights! It might just be time to rent it.

There's nothing like spring light and brilliant daffodils!
