f l u o r e s c e n t

Back in 2004, Richard Box created this display of 1301 fluorescent bulbs lit by power lines. I don't understand how it works exactly -- something about the energy surrounding the lines? Wouldn't this have been a fun surprise for an unexpected passerby?

Cynthia Warren Design

I enjoy Cynthia Warren's simple clothes-pined picture rails. She has such a great eye for color and texture too. My desk could maybe look like this for a day??

I LOVE breakfast. It is the reason I am able to drag myself out of bed. I think I was too spoiled while I was growing up because my breakfasts actually looked like this. The cream of wheat was so smooth and sweet, the pancakes were mickey mouse and the "have a good day" notes were usually found later in my lunches. Thanks mom and dad! I hope I am this kind of creative and thoughtful mother someday.

Remembering the Souls of Our Departed

Tonight at mass we commemorated our loved ones who have passed and lit candles on their behalf. Their names were read aloud during communion and the litany of saints was sung. It was such a beautiful service. I wish I had a photo of our church altar because it was covered in tea lights -- each representing a loved one who had passed in 2008. Instead, I grabbed one from the church I was lucky enough to attend all summer -- St. Patrick's Cathedral. I'm sure this image doesn't do justice to the service they held today.
