Fun Monday Challenge #31 - Gifts of Light and Inspiration

"Here comes the Sun" collage by Lani, textures by FlyPaper.
Over at 14 Secrets we are celebrating the coming winter solstice and return of the sun with virtual gifts of light and inspiration from the moderators.

Day 1 was a video Gena took of a street performer in Paris.  It is so lovely!  I had to do some research on this kind of performance and I found a performer in Taiwan!  So here you are:




And of course we want to have some interesting, inspiring quotes as part of our gifts of light and inspiration so here's the gift from Day 2: Here’s the sexy white hot truth about creativity. It’s a religious experience. It’s a transcendental adventure. It’s the losing of the daily self and entering the magic kingdom. You come back bigger. You come back satiated. You come back sweeter. You come back with wings and fins and new toes that seek for higher ground. You never come back the same. by Tama J. Kieves

And my favorite Winter Solstice Celebration is the one that occurs at St. John the Divine in NYC. If you ever get the chance... oh my...


So here's the challenge. Create an art piece as a gift for yourself or someone else, that has something to do with the return of light and inspiration.  And as always have fun with this and feel free to share your work or play on Instagram by adding #14SecretsChallenge to your description, or by adding your photo to our Flickr pool.
