At night it glows, like a rainbow. Softly shifting its color from hue to hue while we watch below. Mesmerizing.
The lights remain, presents gone. The roar of excitement has quieted and we begin to notice the special things, the memories. With all its charm.
For this week, I looked ahead after, the guests were gone, and noticed a different view of the objects around me. This bear no longer represented a toy, it became part of a memory.
“On the Edge”
It’s cold, calm. The lights across the river shout back at me as I stand here. I’m on the edge, not knowing which way to turn as they flicker about. The hustle and bustle of the city can get to anyone but tonight the city speaks. Mesmerizing me and drawing me back in. Hopelessly lost within.

“All that Glitters”
f2.5, 1/100 sec,. ISO 800, 50 mm
The season is bright; is full of light. It bounces in all directions putting on a spectacular display. The sparkle of it all is mesmerizing. Still, all that glitters is not always gold, but it is still special. Memorable.

We sit, drinking. The gentle glow of the lights fall upon us as we reminisce about the old days. Cocktails are flowing and gently erasing the stress of the days work. I glance up and the source of the glow becomes apparent as the chandelier above us flickers like candles. And a sense of calm overcomes me.
