Beautiful blue ice church is beautiful

Art's in the Right Place

I know pretty much nothing about the Sapporo Winter Festival (although it sounds like EXACTLY the sort of thing I would like to visit) and I know absolutely nothing about who built this.

I’m more Magdalen than I am a Virgin


So, I have finally decided that I am ready to transition into a more structured, public blog. Of course, I will continue to use my micro-blog platforms as they make it easier to display more personal bursts of dribble but, I think it’s high time that I take myself seriously and let more people into my craft and my personal agendas.

Let There be Light!

Zoltar Told Me

I love these Balloon Lights from Estiluz

I’m not sure they’d look good in just any old room, but the way they have it set

Have you ever tried color light therapy?  The thought is different colors can change your mood.  For example, green relaxes while red stimulates.  Now you can get a colored light therapy egg night light for every emotion!

How’d you like to wait at this traffic light in London?
