Nablusoss, wrt light, for the past month or so I've become so aware of the 
sunlight, or any light for that matter. But the sunlight is so sublime, almost 
a living thing. Its silence is definitely a beautiful song.

Silence becomes so dominating and thick one can almost touch and certainly see 
it as small balls of light joyfully floating around. It's tempting to spend 
longer periods of time in such a manner, perhaps in the Mountains.

This reminds me of a video I captured recently, of a deer feeding in my meadow, 
with the sun streaming like an umbrella of light, through the trees, at about 
7:30 AM, two days ago. I will have to do a screen shot and show you, but the 
card is back in the camera at the moment, and I haven't copied it over yet.

 Sunlight at this time of year is less direct and has a yellower and oranger 
hue to it. Autumn sunlight has more color than summer sunlight. I notice it 
too. There is more than just leaf color and air temperature that distinguishes 
one time of the year from another.

Ann, here are some more reasons to love how nature works: the leaves of trees 
take on warmer colors in the autumn, as the air becomes cooler; trees become 
bare in the winter so that more sunlight can reach us with its warmth; in 
summer the leaves are plentiful and thus shade us from the sun; and in spring, 
that gorgeous green helps us detox after a slothful winter. (In Chinese 
medicine green is the color that helps the liver.)
