In the late 14th Century, enlumyen described written material decorated with gold, silver, and vivid colors. To illuminate, c. 1500, meant not only to light up, but to shine on.
The thing about glowing moments is that the light lingers as it changes. As with the best memories, there is an afterglow, shades lighter as time passes.
Sometimes the light transforms itself in waves and pockets, creating constellations seemingly within our reach. It is to be savored.
We linger and breathe in the sun’s serpentine rise as it gradually illuminates whatever cloud cover the day offers. A luminous sunrise forestalls our busy days and expands time as darkness awaits us.
Golden light seems as if it will never be extinguished. And sometimes it never is.
