Wrapping The World in Light

Globe Wrapped In Light by Maria Theresa Maggi

Happy Solstice Dear Readers! I have performed a little pastel magic to wrap our beautiful blue ball of earth in light. Wherever you live on it, we are all on a threshold through the longest night, or reveling in the longest day. It seems to me to hold such opposites in our hearts is exactly what we need to heal. It’s sometimes hard to hold the spectrum of a polarity, but may love give us courage, and light our way into the new year.

I ask that you join me in remembering to look up, and in shining your own light through the darkness wherever it is most needed. Here are some sketches of what I’ve seen recently when I remember to look up.




And here is a little light that helps me remember to keep shining mine.


One last thing: I hope to be silly as often as it visits me. It used to mean to be “blessed,” and in my opinion it still does.

Happy Holidays!

I don’t always take the time to read your posts, but so glad I did this one. Your words, with the beautiful images are so encouraging. Wish you could send this out to everyone on the planet! Thank you so much, and may the New Year bring us all more wisdom and light.

Happy Holidays, dearest Maria. I look forward to catching up on your latest blog posts as a part of my celebration of the 12 days of Christmas, and this lovely post — with that oh-so-familiar and uplifting image! — is a happy place to start. Here’s to new a year bathed in blessings and silliness both,

On this early Saturday morning in Texas I am catching up on your blog. Congratulations on moving and here’s to another adventure. I believe everything happens for a reason, I tell you this because I have been going thru a rough patch in my life for the past couple of months, As I read your words above “I ask that you join me in remembering to look up, and in shining your own light through the darkness wherever it is most needed”. You’re words spoke to me and gave me hope, hope that I really needed. Thank you, you have no idea how much I needed those words at this point in my life.
