Heavy? Nah, Pretty Light.
I spend so much time with my head buried in a laptop looking for coolsh*t worthy art, and it turns out all I really needed to do was look up. Or, more accurately, I needed to bury my head in a laptop to see what other people saw when they looked up. Not much of an improvement actually, is it? However, it is a reminder that ol’ Mother Nature is a pretty decent artist herself, and she doesn’t even need to smoke roll-ups all day and bang on about her creative process in the way that most artists do, so that’s a bonus. This week, the aurora borealis – or Northern Lights, to the simpleton – was on full display over parts of Scotland, and the views were spectacular. Plus, imagining a Glaswegian saying ‘aurora borealis’ is a little funny, so that’s good too.
Edit: The day of writing this, the sky in London is thick with orange Saharan dust, reminding us that Mother Nature giveth but she also taketh away. She’s certainly temperamental enough to be an artist.Read Original Story
