So very often, great ideas are born of free creative thought, in the dark stillness of night.
When imagination softly knocks… Be sure to open the door!
Imagination and magic are a vital part of my happiness.
“Sunburst” by Peter Williams. A watercolour painting depicting a young Native American Indian boy watching the sun come up from a high point with his Indian pony beside him.
“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic — the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we’re alone.”
― Charles de Lint

Fairy house shelf? Perfect!
For a stunning series entitled Blackwater, Hawaii-based diver and photographer Joshua Lambus takes beautiful photos of luminous aquatic creatures against a perfectly black background that enables us to better appreciate just how incredibly awesome they are.
Lambus says, “Now being underwater I’m inundated with stories, struggles, triumphs. Seeing our fragile ecosystem inch ever closer to the verge of destruction pushes me to continue my work, not only for artistic value, but for a far greater purpose. I hope to tell a story and ask for help for those without a voice.”
Here’s hoping we’ll see some of these enchanting cephalopods in our dreams tonight.

“Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.”
