Quiet night watching the light.

“People are like stained glass windows, the true beauty can be seen only when there is light from within. The darker the night, the brighter the windows.” – Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

Can you hear them crackle and ripple? These are just a few of the legends surrounding the phenomenon known as the northern lights. The stars have aligned for aurora viewing in 2012 and 2013, as an increase in sunspot activity will result in more active, colorful aurora during the normal viewing season of August through late April. The phenomenon is a spectacle to behold, transforming a starry night sky with waves of yellow, lime-green and red that move and pulse in ways that leave viewers with a sense of wonder.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” – Brene Brown
