there is something about light when it fills a room that gives you a feeling of happiness. other things in life give that same beautiful, lovely feeling of beauty and light and clarity. these pictures share that light and bring me calmness and a quiet feeling of gratitude. that beauty exists in the world all around us. i am very thankful for these things because without them, i would be very sad. beauty is so important in our lives. it is what keeps us hoping for better times and helps us remember what life was like before we came here.
