Northern Lights & Reflections

I have a camera, and sometimes I even remember to take pictures with it.

However, I rarely DO anything with my pictures. I hardly ever upload them to the MyBook I bought so the pictures wouldn't clog up my hard drive. (My 12 yo son has taken it upon himself to do this every so often)

So here is a momentous occasion: I am uploading the picture that inspired the name of this blog. This is the nighttime view from one side of the wraparound mirpeset. Let me know what you think!

Lights all around

I have absolutely neglected my blog, because life just sometimes gets in the way. We are still living in the gorgeous Northern Israel, and I hung out the laundry tonight on my mirpeset with an amazing breeze (yay! the laundry will dry quickly!), and a gorgeous nighttime view of the city lights, the dark Kinneret, and the lights of the various surrounding cities and towns... absolutely stunning.
It made me stop and think about the way the lights shine, and sometimes you can catch the twinkle of lights in a single house, and sometimes it's all a jumbled big mess of lights. Here in Israel, it's so much more likely to be the lights of each house. And each house is significant. We are all part of the future of the Land, the People, the State - and I'm so grateful and happy that we have been able to come back home.
