Part of my "Grounding Environments" series, this captures the moments I enjoy seeing streetlight and moonlight pour in through my father's window.

Amy Webb’s Night Glow describes a state of being between the world's chaos and restfulness of repose.

Escaping one's racing thoughts and submerging oneself in the little details of reality is often ridiculously difficult. There is magic in the mundane; the fleeting shades that dance across our rooms, floating specks of dust illuminated by shafts of sunlight, the warm outer edges of a flickering candle's glow. These tiny occurrences play out before our eyes daily and feel inconsequential because they are, but beauty does not derive from the consequential. We do not need to seek out stunning vistas or grand architecture to find visual wonder. Sometimes, we can simply sit in our beds and watch the ephemeral dramas of light, shadow, and shape that go unnoticed or unappreciated unless we take the time to let ourselves sink into the deceptively insignificant wonders of our world.
