It may be because we are relegated to odd hours of the day. It may be due to strange sleep schedules and bouts of insomnia. Migraine tends to make eyes, extra light sensitive, as does Lupus and a quite a few other chronic diseases. Whatever the reason, when your relationship with light changes, you become far more aware of it's presence and it's absence.
This may be heightened for me by my love and training in photography. Light is one of my greatest loves. My space is littered with lanterns and magic little lights. Turning our living spaces into retreats takes the ordinary and transforms it into the enchanted. It's impossible not to lose time to a migraine (for those who suffer them) so why not live in the most magic of spaces?
This copper coil of lights from Restoration Hardware starts at $9.99 and goes as far as your imagination will carry you.. Of course, you can use Christmas lights or anything that tickles your fancy. I love to fill aviaries and large glass water bottles myself. ( I just ask one of the handy fellows nearby to use a glass drill bit on the water bottle so I can plug the lights in discreetly) Second hand thrift stores often have orb shaped ceiling fixtures with a large hole for the bulb. I use these for outdoor applications... tucking these into planters. I know you Royals have wonderful imaginations, so take this as an invitation to send in pictures of your light installations and personal ideas!
Of course you could just relax as the Royals do and enjoy a glass of something refreshing with your feet up and your mind at ease.
And remember not only do you belong, but you are beloved.
