|04:31 pm - Wednesday wish-place and early Thanksgiving wishes|
This morning when I was browsing Pinterest, I saw the most amazing image and knew immediately it was today's wish-place.
This is "Lucid Stead," an art/architectural installation by Phillip K Smith in Joshua Tree, California. It is a small homesteader's place out in the desert, but it's been fitted with mirrors to reflect the world and lights to bring color to the windows.
Of course I do find beauty in desert landscapes anyway, and this photograph of "Lucid Stead" at the magic hour is a perfect encapsulation of deep dark sky, pink of light change, distant mountains, level valley. It is invitation and reflection for me.
Would I wish to be there? Maybe not in the way I've usually wanted to be in the other Wednesday wish-places. But I am thankful for the reminders of the enormity of the sky, of the beauty of light and color, of grace in unexpected places. I wish to remember all of that, not just today.
Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it, and for all, happy celebrations of light.
Oh, that's very cool!
Happy TG, amiga.
Happy Thanksgiving and beyond, Cronopio! May there be pie and good things in abundance. :)
What an amazing, dream-inducing image.
Celebrations of light indeed.
hugs and holiday toasts!
That image is just the kind of thing that I love -- so I'm glad to share it. :)
Lights and a glass of bubbly and hugs, ALH!

That's amazing. It looks as if the door and windows open on to other worlds.
Happy Thanksgiving to you from the land where tomorrow is just Thursday :)
I do love portals, in any shape or form. ;)
May there be light and good things for you, even if it's just Thursday for you!

Hugs and much light.
Hugs and much light even in an English winter, my friend! Hugs twice. :)
oh, that's wonderful.
I would love to see the installation in person -- but the picture is wonderful on its own.
Hugs, S, and a lovely Thanksgiving to you!

Love the colours, what a pretty picture.
It's a photo I'll definitely come back to!
Happy Thursday, T, and a lovely start to the weekend ahead.
That's really gorgeous photography--wow. Happy Thanksgiving to you, L, and to Master Danger.
Yes, the photo makes the installation even cooler.
Happy happy Thanksgiving, F! And to your fella and the cats, too. Enjoy the day with your brother. [hugs]
