Heather Horton, “Ghosts in the Sun”
I always find beauty in an unmade bed
especially one caressed by the sun.
The creases and folds that had earlier enveloped one’s body and soul
become a highlighted reminder that when we rise each new day
we leave behind the dishevelled and messy layer of yesterday.
Interior Strandgade 30, 1901
The work of Vilhelm Hammershøi brings a deep sense of peace and contentment.
A solitary woman seen only from the back evokes mystery and intrigue.
Empty rooms filled with light hold back darkness and gloom.
Each painting creates a space of clarity and calm
where minds are still and souls are at peace.
