February's Creative Everyday Theme: Night

by - Tuesday, January 31, 2012



Night time is really the best time to work.  All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep.  


~Catherine O'Hara


I love the February theme at Creative Everyday. The theme is "night"- a rather beguiling topic to uncover, discover and explore through art, crafts and reflections.

This theme reminds me of the unforgettable movie of yore  Brother Sun, Sister Moon ( Fratello Solle, Sorella Luna). The movie is essentially about the friendship of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Clare but it also touches on the metaphysical  aspect of our divine brotherhood with the cosmos. As the sun and the moon are both siblings in the cosmic playground, there can be no sibling rivalry.  As the sky changes from blue, scarlet to pitch black, we notice the seamless and flawless division of labor of these cosmic elements. The sun illuminates, energizes and powers the planet while the moon is a gentle night light- inducing peace, rest, sweet dreams and physical restoration. There is beauty in daylight but another kind of  beauty also exists in the darkness, shadows and silence.

For the next 28 days I wish to explore the beauty of night through arts and crafts, photography and paper crafts. I wish you could join me in this creative everyday challenge.
