The Elements

William McClain, who has visited our previous site, recommended this magical video from Iceland.  It features the music of Sigur Ros, the Icelandic group, and a theater troop of developmentally disabled adults who offer us this play on the elements.  Two of my children lived and worked with developmentally disabled young adults and adults and I have learned much from their experiences.  These individuals live full and rich lives if we acknowledge their strengths, instead of just focusing on what they lack.  I find this a lovely interpretation of humans and their search for meaning.

“In A Dutch Town, A Glowing Bike Path Inspired By Van Gogh”

In A Dutch Town, A Glowing Bike Path Inspired By Van Gogh

If you have a spare minute, listen to this NPR story…combining elements of light and shadow and night, I think this bike path is an excellent example of lighting design that both honors our readings and Van Gogh’s Starry Night. I would love to visit this, although I hope it doesn’t result in any light pollution. (Fortunately, it is all solar-powered.)
