Light and Shadow II

“For a while they stood there, like men on the edge of a sleep where nightmare lurks, holding it off, though they know that they can only come to morning through the shadows.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

There has been a lot going on here in the last month, some good, lots that has been not good. I've felt like my life has been metaphorically cloaked in shadow much of the time (sorry for the dramatics!), but leading to the Solstice today and the lovely return of light, I started paying attention to actual light and shadow and saw some interesting things (to me anyway.) When I was helping Ryan move to Fort Collins several years ago, I was struck by the patterns of light and shadow in his house, and have been intrigued to find many more instances around me when I looked.

I have old, wavy glass in many of my windows, but I never realized
 just how wavy it is until I started paying attention to these reflections.

I am even beginning to see a bit of color!


  1. I've missed your posts. Hope everything is okay.

  2. It's so good to hear from you, as I was beginning to worry. I'm sorry you're dealing with some not so good things. Watching the light move through the seasons is one of my favorite things. I love the look of your wavy windows!

  3. Good to see you! I've been on a "shadow photo" kick lately. Yours are so lovely - like shadows inside of shadows - swirling - dancing.....

  4. You have been missed. I pray the light shines on you with love. (((Hugs)))

  5. light cannot exist without darkness... but I hope you see and feel more light in these coming days. xo.

  6. I love, love, love your light show. Such lovely images. I hope the color continues to make it's way into your life. Sending much love -- and holding you in the light! XOXOXO
