Let there be (lead) light

My mindful arrangements of things on Mondays was, in part, inspired by the joy Mal's treewe have had in rediscovering things that have been in storage for over seven years.  I am not the only one with a driven creative energy in the house and it was wonderful to unpack these lovely leadlights and to discover them (relatively) inatct.  A testimony toTibetan men fabulous packaging I must say.  They now hang in their new sun drenched home and we are really enjoying them.

I love the two old Tibetan blokes and we are careful to arrange them so that they can continue there conversation while the young ones ride their horses DSCN3226and practise their archery.

The other wonderful thing is that the leadlight making gear was unpacked and bought over too so the resident glass artist is rediscovering his leadlighting skills. Without too much bloodshed.DSCN3227

The other reason I chose these for the week is that my Training the Elephant practice this week is to expand my awareness of light in all its forms, bright and dim, direct and reflected.  How good are DSCN3229these for prompting me to do that?  Maybe I can enlist the artist to make me a leadlight mindfulness tile….
