Walking toward the light

    What spectacular photos…the joy of the season through the warmth of lights. …here in New Mexico, thousands of luminarias dot the landscape. Luminarias are simple paper bags filled with sand and a tea light placed in each one. They mark pathways, tops of buildings , churches, ruins in Pueblos…some are quite fancy because they have punched out designs much like papel picado so the light that comes from these luminarias, dances in the night air.

    The quiet softness of your yard as snow descends is especially soul satisfying.

      I’ve seen a few people decorating with luminaria, but they are not often used here in Maine. My sister once made a globe out of ice with a candle inside it. Very pretty, but it was difficult to make and of course, melted quickly with rising temps and candlelight.

    the photos of Quebec City at night are magical and I especially like the second image, which looks like a bejeweled crown … but then the simple peace and quiet of snow falling in your yard and I think I could sit all day long with a view like that, spell-bound
