Christmas lights through a glass wall

December Light

The rain is pounding down as I write, and the shortest day of the year is coming this Friday – not to mention, the end of the world, if you’re a believer in the purported ancient Mayan prediction. (I’m not!)

So I figure we can all use a bit of extra light to help lift our spirits through these dark days.

I ran across this splash of colour a few days ago. when we were walking with my brother and his dog, Sammi, on a cold, wet evening in Vancouver. The lights twinkled out from behind the thick glass privacy wall at the edge of the park where Sammi loves to run (no matter how foul the weather).

I’m not sure if the lights were indoors or outside, but either way, they provided a welcome beacon of hope on a December evening, when darkness comes all too soon.

    How fitting, Laurie. You are a beacon of light, too! I have so enjoyed your gorgeous images and your writing since we met virtually. I love how deeply rooted you are to your place and how much you care about the land and its eco-systems. You inspire me on a regular basis. Just wanted to let you know this, in case the world does end and I don’t get another chance 😉
