In the spotlight

While I have been away at the Sydney Quilt Show, it's been been fascinating to read the other posts about the theme of illumination and ideas that are developing. I must confess that, despite putting forward the theme, my own ideas are very embryonic and follow many different strands including moonlight; sunrise; theatre lights; street lights and neon lights. I was intrigued to see that the Martin Scorsese documentary on the Rolling Stones is called "Shine A Light" so maybe that's another source of inspiration...

Well if you haven't seen it go to it girl!!! It's great!!! I don't know if it will inspire you for your work, but it's a great moment to live through this in a movie theater, you're up there with them!!!!

PS Shine a light is the title of one of their songs in case you didn't know......

Haven't seen the movie yet, but saw the Stones in concert for the first time last year and it was, indeed, illuminating. Brilliant, sparkling, almost blinding in its intensity. Isn't great art always a beacon, a shining light?
