Christmas Lights 2017

As darkness falls and Uluru is thrown into silhouette, Field of Light illuminates. As far as the eye can see gentle rhythms of colour light up the desert.

The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara is Munro’s largest work to date, with more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres over an area the size of seven football fields. Pathways draw viewers into the installation, which comes to life under a sky brilliant with stars.

 

Soul Gifting

December 2017 Soul Gifting goes to Opher Goodwin, of Opher’s World

Opher is passionate about many things. A prolific writer of sci fi,  rock music and other things, he calls himself an antitheist. Ever prepared to discuss and debate, he also likes a good laugh or two. Of those, he has given me plenty with his witty comments. In his own words –

I believe in equality, tolerance, justice and freedom. I respect other people’s points of view and do not expect people to share the same beliefs as me. ..and would like to live in a world where there is harmony between people and respect for the environment.

With this in mind, he has drafted a document for discussion about the  Universal Declaration of Animal Rights

Do go visit and leave your comments.

  1. Wow!! I would love to have seen that lightshow on Sydney Opera House. It looks spectacular. Uluru is one place I’m planning on going to pilgrimage to Raili. That field of lights was something else!

    Thank you so much for your kind words. It is really nice of you. I so look forward to your gift. May all good things come to you and yours.

    1. Opher, Sydney Opera House is lit up every year with different themes. I was really taken with the Uluru lights. Surprisingly I hadn’t heard about it at all. That is one place I want to visit too. I do hope your gift arrives soon. May your holiday season be filled with fun, laughter and love shared with the special people in your life.

  2. Both videos are beautiful. The Field of Light has an ethereal quality to it, and the Sydney Opera House is surreal. It’s amazing what can be done with lights these days.

    Did I thank you for the Christmas card? This is the first time in years that Christmas has been anywhere near normal for me, and I haven’t organised myself properly, so I doubt that what I sent you through the post will arrive much before the New Year 😉

    1. I’m so happy for you, Jane! Organised or not, the reality of it is just so wonderful for you and your family. It will all fall into place for you perfectly 🙂 Bless you all. And thank you in advance, that is so sweet of you 🙂 xx
