light through stained glass


"People are like stained-glass windows...



...They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in,


their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within."

— Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

ooooooooohhhh. Your focus on light and dark really inspires me. I wish there was another word for it, since "inspires" seems so OPRAH, but there's not. it's what you do to me. THank you.

A beautiful, true quote so well illuminated through your photos.

And often the light shines brighter because of the darkness it must burst through! Wonderful quote and analogy. That's a glorious photo--I love whatever you are photographing--is it one of your hanging windows or colored globes or a combination of colored bottles? I'm intrigued! :>) The light is shining a bit brighter in this household this morning. I'm praying it is in yours.

I've read all of Kubler-Ross's books on grieving - some of the most important reads I've ever done.
