Mindful of sorrow, I am nevertheless celebrating. Both the dark and the light are important.
The sparkling light in the image sent by LizN - thnak you so much! - is brilliant. It's by Fanny Brate, and very reminiscent of Carl Larsson but with more light. Wonderfully skillful painting. After all, how do you paint light? Only by painting the shadows.
The book was a gift with a subscription to Country Living magazine decades ago, and it reminds me to make a little effort to celebrate all the small things. As I have often said, it would be churlish not to.
What can you celebrate today?
