Quiet Places | Shining Through



Winter's light crests just above freezing. The bright sun doesn't penetrate the snowy ice instead reflecting a promising glare.


Icy brilliance.



Persephone thrives in wintertime.


Her mind clear with energy for days, she goes about in weather. Lovely snow flurries inspire laughter as the flakes catch in her lashes.


Clear days, her glasses quickly darken as she penguin walks on the ice packed snow. Her boots squeak and crunch as Perce's tall dark Hunter's navigate the mostly covered sidewalks with ease.


Warmth within.



Inside, the smoke rises from mesquite suggesting cozy space. Persephone lights candles. The mood shifts calm playful as the flames dance about. Outside the window, sun begins to circle round, the light piercing sheers.


Violet thrives in indirect light. Her furry green leaves shimmer purple as she's leaning into nourishment. Beside her, a sidekick its leaves seeking light growing like a teen.


As sun is down, wooden shades close for the night.





We'll be seeing you tomorrow.


Cheers and best,
