If You Were The Sun…

I can see why painters move to places for the beauty of the light. I can never take a photo nor paint a picture that seems to do it justice though it doesn’t stop me trying.

We don’t have an Ibiza-style island sundowner place to hang out here in Granada, primarily because we’re not by the beach (!), but I’m quite happy catching it unexpectedly as I walk around Granada. It really can be quite magnificent and rather beautiful.

I find that the sun and its light have a huge influence on me and my mood and imagine that would be true for others too. It always seems to lift me up when I see it with that gentle, sublime glow. As I was walking around yesterday, I got to thinking about the sun and its impact. So, with this in mind:

if you were the sun, who or what would you shine your light on?

  1. Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.

    If I were the sun, I would shine for 3 more hours in winter, just to cheer everyone up. I’d make it after work finishes, say, to shine from 5-8pm instead of getting dark then. I love daylight saving in summer, and I hate having to switch back.

    I would also have an hour a day where I shone different colours, like an LED light changing from yellow to orange to pink to all the other colours, and back again. It could be kind of like a disco but outside. 🙂

    As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I am also adding participating blogs to my feed reader. So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, whenever you publish a post I will see it. 🙂

    I have created three bundles on Inoreader so that bloggers can easily visit other participating NaBloPoMo bloggers which you can find here –

    Your blog is in the second bundle.. I also have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.

    Looking forward to seeing your posts. You may see me drop by again during November, but it might be December before I finish my first drop by to blogs if I don’t get faster at leaving comments. 🙂

    Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
