Carry an empty bag.
Go to the top of the hill.
Pour all the light you can in it.
Go home when it is dark.
Hang the bag in the middle of your
room in place of a light bulb.

This photograph was taken by my cousin Leah Snapp Kasten on her porch in Skandia, Michigan this past Friday morning. The temperature was -5 degrees.
I have been thinking about light a lot this winter. It’s my first winter working from home and I have two big windows in my home studio, as well as two big windows in my studio. I am enjoying watching the sunrise while I drink my coffee observing the birds at my kitchen feeder and long mid-afternoon walks with my dog. Just soaking up as much light as I can. I’m also thinking about the light we share with others when we teach or share from the radiance of our own being. Here’s hoping you are gathering light these days in whatever ways you can.
