The windows are in and the walls are primed. What an amazing transformation it is to put a window in a wall that had none, a wall facing the west.

The walls are primed. One of the new windows is covered with plastic but it still lets in spectacular light.

The project isn’t even finished yet but there was a pause so I gathered a small bouquet of honeysuckle, thyme, butterfly bush and ivy and placed it in the window. It was a holy moment. I used to sit in that corner at my computer. But even next to the sliding glass door, there was never enough light. And now look at this!!!

First bouquet in the new window, even before it's done.

Now my computer is in an even more dark space. I’ve decided to not block the new window with my computer so I’ll probably be on my computer less. But just to make my new office space cheerier, this is how I light where I am.

Chandelier ornaments and a bracelet hang from an artificial tree to light my new office space.

Where are you? Are you in a dark place? Don’t keep saying you’ll be happy when you finally get to some other place. People who are happy inside are light on the inside, no matter where they are. It is a choice.
I remember when we were homeless I carefully gathered a little bouquet of flowers and placed it on a picnic table. My dining room then was under a canopy of trees in the day and a chandelier of stars at night. There is NO place on earth where you can’t find light.
