Let There be Light!


Draw up a chair to the fireside

Lights make such a difference to our surroundings, and when our main source of light and heat, the sun, goes to bed for the night, or goes to the other side of the world to warm up our neighbours, then it’s time to turn on the artificial lights and heat.

What could be better than sitting before an open fire, logs crackling and flames leaping, on a crisp winter’s day!

And these little lights light up the walkway for a romantic evening stroll, listening to the sound of the waves.

Strolling on the beach

On a walk through my home city, Cork, the local bank was well lit to show off the shape of the old building.

The old Munster and Leinster Bank, South Mall

During a visit to Dublin a few months ago, we visited the Maritime Museum in Dun Laoghaire, which is housed in an old church,and the stained glass windows and old ships lighting all helped to make it an interesting place to visit.   See also my post  about Dun Laoghaire

The Mariners Church, which holds the Maritime Museum

And the stairway in this ruin at an old graveyard shows some light from the top – maybe its ‘heavenly light’?

Stairway to Heaven

    Your top photo makes me miss our wood-burning stove that was in the house we just sold.

    I have open fire envy. My sixties maisonette has no chimney so a fire is a distant dream. One day…
