Night Lights

October 20th, 2010

With the darkness closing in earlier now, I always turn on the white twinkle lights and made-by-a-friend  tin can lights on my porch when I go out in the evening. I love coming home late, driving down my street and seeing from a block away my house welcome me back like a fiesta for one. And I like the idea of  sending out peace and love via prayer flags and party lights to anyone passing by. Porch lights are signs of hope and rescue and respite in a dark sea of night and trouble and losing our way. We all need to have one turned on for us for us somewhere in the world, to guide us home by the  heart strings.

    I really love this Nikki. This porch is just awesome and the home looks devine. I would love to see what this home looks like. Thanks for sharing.

  2. My husband is an energy-conserving weiner nerd who would love to have the whole family huddled around a single light bulb in winter. I enjoy mood lighting and lighting the room adjacent to where I am so I don’t feel isolated by the darkness. I turn the lights on; he turns the lights off. We make each other crazy that way. When he’s gone, the house looks like a Thomas Kinkade painting, ha ha ha.
