Finding the Light
Often when I’m walking in the woods near our home, I’m struck by the light filtering through leaves, hitting the trunks of trees, or the water, a heron perched on a log, or a rocky cliff on a distant shore. I sometimes take pictures at such moments and this week I’ve started an online photography class. Photography, the study of light.
Sometimes it’s easy to find the light. Sometimes it’s more of a challenge. But given how light can make us feel and show us what’s beautiful, maybe it’s important that we continue our search, no matter how dark the days, and how long the nights.
In these days of shorter days and longer nights, may the light be with you!
