Let There Be Light

Last week Hearth Talks wrote a post called It's all about the Light. The word 'light' has been dancing and playing in and out of my life more and more, so for some reason I saved my response to Sister Kathryn and wanted to share it here today.

I will be gone for the next several days, hopefully spreading light with others and more importantly helping them find their own light as I help facilitate a workshop for Soltura. If you are a praying person, please consider keeping the women who will be journeying together in this soul searching work in your prayers. Good thoughts are also welcome.☺


Now, here is my comment in response to It's all about the Light:

"ah, yes, the light...an image that daily becomes closer to my heart and soul. it is a reawakening to something that has been present all my life, but was "hidden under a bushel" of shame and silence. a couple of years ago, a friend gave me the gift of "lucy". originally, it was as a reminder to me of the times when i get quite prickly and appear not so kind. it was a gift because it was to remind me that my true essence is one of kindness and joy not bitchiness, etc.

only last december...december 12 to be exact (the feast day of st. lucia) did i learn that lucy means light.

yes, the light is dear to my heart. it is a gift that keeps on giving. thank you for this beautiful reminder!"

Wishing you Light in the coming days!

Lucy, Miss LIGHT -
Keep sharing your LIGHT!
My name means LIGHT, as does my son's name: Luke.
Sending prayers and good vibes your way as your journey intersects with others at Soltura.
Peace.

Peace be with you during your time with the women at Soltura, Lucy. I visited Sr. Kathryn's beautiful site; am unable to leave a comment there, but am happy to have found it through you. We have several of those glorious burning bushes in our back yard, and they bring such joy to me in the autumn.

Lucy, dear Lucy,
I'm too old to read those little white letters on a black background.
Love, CP

Wonderful post, Lucy. Know that you and and your women are embraced in the light this special week -- and always!

I'm aligned with the Parson regarding the black background. It is striking to look at, but I find it hard and tiring to read. I prefer black text on a light background.

I wish for a "light" background!

It is your blog y'know... but I do favor a lighter background myself..

hope you are doing well!! :)

due to many complaints...oops, comments... i have changed the blog view back to white. hope this facilitates your reading and commenting.

cp--what's with the repetition? is something else failing along with your eyesight? :-)

Oh country parson, geezer dude & shelby -- thanks for speaking up. The only way I've been able to manage keeping up since Lucy went "dark & dramatic" (beautiful to look at but oh so hard for these old eyes to read) has been with Google Reader which lets me read the posts dark on light. That amazing program is a wondrous thing actually. I highly recommend it to those who struggle to read sites like Sleepy Bear Hollow & Lucy's "dark period" :)

Lucy -- I did love the "look" of your transformed site and believe it's good to experiment. Actually several friends have suggested my photos would look more dramatic if I shifted to a dark background, but after playing with various "looks" ... I've opted for simplicity myself. Rest assured, my dear ... we'll return to read what you write no matter what!
Hugs and blessings,

Well, well, what a nice comment from CP - I was wondering about the three repeat posts...and, yes, we will return to read - often! So keep it up.
