Yes...Yes I 'Do' Like The Light!

        "You know you like the lights!"...This was said to me by someone who knows that I don't celebrate Christmas, in reference to all of the lights that decorate downtown streets and every neighborhood around me...I answered her, and I don't think she liked it...but that's not the kind of light I was talking about today anyway.
      I'm talking about the glorious light of day in my backyard every morning! :-) Because of 'Daylight Savings Time' the sun goes down very early in the evenings, and seems to take FOREVER to reappear in the backyard in the mornings now! So, when it finally does it makes me wanna sing and write poems about it! LOL
     But before it came up this morning, especially since I was in such a good mood after a very good night of sleep and rest, I went in search of light...on Etsy! :-) Here's what lit me up...besides that gorgeous dancing of light in the header photo I mean!...

       Can you see how the light is dancing in all of these photos?!...I needed to see that light this morning...while I was sitting in the dark, waiting for the sun to come up! ^_^ So Etsy...thank you! :-) 
       And I should say a thank you to Kamana too, of the blog Journalling Through Photos. Her post this morning about 'a day in the sun' perked me right up and made me feel like the sun was totally shining in my backyard.....Well, maybe not in "my" backyard, but definitely in hers!! :-)
        You can click the photo and follow the link over to see the other photo she posted too! Trust won't be sorry. :-)
     And if that's still not enough light for about this from HotAirBallonRide!...
         Wearing these babies while you're strolling to some music is what I would call seeing light dance! :-)
         These shoes would be good for cutting through darkness...and 'cutting a rug'! ^_^ The heels come with a switch on the bottom to turn them on and off. And yes...they 'are' for sale!....I'll say it again...'People Are So Creative'!!! 
      Okay, the sun is completely up in my backyard now. And it looks like it's gonna be a beautifully sunny day! :-) I'm off to enjoy it! I hope you enjoy yours too!...And if you don't have light and sun where you live right now, come back and take a look at my light any time! :-]


I wait most every morning
to see soft light coming through the trees;
To see the darkness pierced by shadows,
making clarity a tease.

I wait most every morning,
knowing darkness will give way;
Hoping sunrise won't forget me,
and my night will soon be day.

I wait most every morning,
for the thick black blanket's night
to flip back and uncover
all the brilliant rested light!

I've never been disappointed.
Light always manages to appear.
And I always smile and wave and holler:
"Hello Light! I'm over here!"
