ABC Wednesday: Illumination
Is it just me, or are Wednesdays rolling around at an Insane rate?! In any case, for this week's ABC Wednesday may I Introduce this hodgepodge of Illuminating photos, past and present ~~
For me, no Illumination is more Ideal than that Imparted by the sun, especially at sunrise...
Our Initial sunrise after moving in to our new home
Impressively, it Illuminates even through cloud cover and rain...
Sunrays Impale rainclouds over a country road in Big Horn
And by close of day, the sun hasn't lost its Intense, Intoxicating allure...
Our first colorful sunset, from our front porch
And I enjoy some of the ways we Illuminate our surroundings after dark...
party lights beneath my friend Robyn's patio umbrella
flames (which I find nearly Impossible to photograph well)
dance in Robyn's patio firepit
And finally, our new house is still Incomplete and is being finished in Irksomely slow Increments, so it feels an Infinitely long way from being Impeccably blog-ready. But in the Interim, here's a peek of our two favorite light fixtures...
Breakfast nook light
Overhead ceiling light in the study
Incidentally, more Illumination is Impending, as my favorite lamp will be the star of my "M" week post! (You'll have to use your Insightful Imaginations to puzzle out how a lamp could be anything but Inappropriate for M week!) ;-)
Enjoy the Illustrious Illustrations of I at
And think of me as I begin the Intimidating task of staining the Infinite number of cedar boards on our new fence!! Ick.

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.
~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
