Finally got over to see the Bruce Munro light show at Cheekwood last night. Luminous indeed.
If you squint just right, the "Field of Light" symbolizes "the good things in life." Like light itself. As a wise wizard said, we just have to remember to turn it on.
Montaigne was a wise wizard too. "There is no other light, no other shade; this very sun, this moon, these very stars, this very order and disposition of things, is the same your ancestors enjoyed, and that shall also entertain your posterity..."
And Wallace Stegner. "The truest vision of life I know is that bird... that flutters from the dark into a lighted hall, and after a while flutters out again into the dark..."
And, whoever said it first, Carl Sagan. It's better to light a candle than curse the night, and "far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.”
More light, more light. More "light"...
