Ornamental: serving to add beauty
This abstract came from a photo that I had of all our ornaments taken down from the tree. I posted it on a blog that I had at that time and titled it, Until Next Year. I was in that headspace of looking back on the past year and looking forward to what was ahead. Amid the brightness, reflection of lights and sparkle, coziness, gifts and comfort, live the deepest feelings and biggest dreams.
This year I started to think about how my traditions and rituals, touchstones of holidays like Christmas or Mardi Gras are doorways. All those festivities and even the garishness of sparkle that entrances you are worth a second look.
