I took these pictures the other day during a walk around our neighbourhood at dusk, which is around 3:30pm now. There's a little abandoned alley between our building and the next that has been quite neglected and is usually just overgrown with branches (which came in really handy as decorations for our wedding!). While I was back in Canada, these light sculptures appeared and the concrete dividers were painted neon pink which makes the whole area much brighter and happier. Not to mention it makes walking through the passage way less sketchy. I love that Copenhagen has the foresight (and resources) to make these kinds of projects happen. It really makes such a difference to areas like this. And speaking of light, I might as well say that there isn't much of it here right now. The days are getting even shorter and for the most part the sky is covered in a grey blanket of fog. But for some reason, it hasn't gotten to me as much this year as it did last year. I've stocked up on candles and have been lighting them in the mornings and evenings. The Danes are crazy about candles and have them everywhere during the winter (even at my school and the bank) and it really does make things cozier. My mom also got me a light lamp, which both Mark and I have been using over breakfast and I think it's really helping. And I've been doing pretty much everything else on this list I made last year of how to cure the winter blues, so far it's working!
