✨✨Escape?✨✨

I'm loving these lights~at~night illustrations.  Perhaps it's the effect of the Full Moon? 

Perhaps they are simply lovely to me.   

Or maybe they express a wish to escape from the *Weirdness in Our Beloved Country and The World*....   

Whatever....   I adore them.  

 And I certainly want to live in them, for awhile...

“No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under conditions of absolute reality.”~Shirley Jackson

“To live on a day-to-day basis is insufficient for human beings; we need to transcend, transport, escape; we need meaning, understanding, and explanation; we need to see over-all patterns in our lives. We need hope, the sense of a future. And we need freedom (or, at least, the illusion of freedom) to get beyond ourselves, whether with telescopes and microscopes and our ever-burgeoning technology, or in states of mind that allow us to travel to other worlds, to rise above our immediate surroundings.~Oliver Sacks

✨✨✨✨✨

“Humans had built a world inside the world, which reflected it in pretty much the same way as a drop of water reflected the landscape. And yet ... and yet ...

Inside this little world they had taken pains to put all the things you might think they would want to escape from — hatred, fear, tyranny, and so forth."
~Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters

Oh, these have hit home with me, too! I am going to look at the pictures on my bigger screen later. And the quotes are as good as the art!

I love your lights at night pictures! Especially the wonderful surprise of the one with the lights in the trees and the little trap door. They are all truly enchanting!

Mari said...

I like them too, especially #2 and the last one. That last one really looks like a place to escape too.

Martha said...

They are beautiful! We all need to escape now and then, especially in our world these days.

I love nighttime and lamplight and different points of light, and so I would like to accompany you into this charmed world! My favorite picture is the one of the cat looking out the window. Lovely quotes you found, too! xoxo

I saw some photos of a local photographer who does night photos, capturing the Milky Way above some island settings. Wish I knew enough about photography to do some night shots. Your interest in the night illustrations interest me too.

Love the pictures, we saw the moon last night, the first time for a couple of nights.
