Art as Transformation: Light and Glass

Today I'm thinking about light and how we receive it.  I'm thinking about stained glass windows and other kinds of sun catchers.

Colored glass fascinates me; it transforms the light into something less harsh, yet perhaps more brilliant.

Colored glass lets the light through while transforming it into something else.  We might say that art does this too.

 Our lives could do this too--let light through, transform the light into a different experience.

And if we're lucky, we find other lightcatchers and a window to call our own, a community that transforms light into art.
