What interests me?
The way the light plays on objects in my home. How it shines across my floor, and creates rainbows on the walls when it passes through the crystals I’ve hung in the windows. Light interests me because I crave it. I crave sunlight and glowing fires and candles burning in shiny, pretty candleholders. My sun sign is Leo, ruled by the sun, our brightest light. As I grow older I come out of the darkness and into that light more and more. It’s as if finding the light is my destiny.
