  1. Even reading about light on this blustery winter day improves my mood. The winter can be hard sometimes. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Oh Courtney, I just watched a TED talk on Vitamin D this morning. It was actually a researcher who studied the effects of sunlight on cardiovascular health.

    Although it is not my ideal place to live, I am rather glad – after reading your post and watching the talk – to live in Houston where we are able to walk five miles most days of the year.

    I love how you connected this to the light in people.

  3. This is so timely as after several dark months we crave light. Looking for light in others, being light in mood and looking after our own light are so important right now. A lovely read, thank you :)

      Thanks Claire, Light is my word of the year and it’s so interesting to see how many different forms there are.

  4. Wonderful post. Photos are beautiful too. Light is a requirement in life how beautifully brought up.

  5. I find that having come from a tropical country, I crave the light more than others in Toronto might. I sometimes go online just to look at pictures of greenery, trees, shrubs, plants. I just want to see the sun, lush trees, and the blue ocean again. This is a good reminder right in the middle of our winter to remind us that summer is just around the corner. The fruit of waiting will be sweet.

  6. Seeking light is why I don’t have a set office space right now. Earlier in the day, I get more and better sunlight by working in my kitchen. By afternoon, it’s my office. I’m like a little sunflower following the sunlight around my apartment.

  7. I LOVED Karen’s talk.

    I know I’m not getting enough Vitamin D, but I hate taking more pills. I always forget to take them – and then I suffer for it.

      It’s all about creating the habit. It would be great if we could get enough Vitamin D from food, but it’s a real challenge.

  8. You are so right about vitamin D!! I (finally) started taking supplements a year ago and noticed a dramatic effect on my mood, especially during the “winter blues” months. My doctor also remarked on how my D levels were uniquely good. IT is so important!

    And then, of course…there is Love. What a beautiful post!

  9. Courtney,

    This is a timely reminder about getting more sunlight! It’s the rainy season here and I know I could use more. And love the idea of looking for the light in others.

  10. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, and a big thanks for sharing the video.

    “Look For The Light” is a lovely thought for life
