Light in the Window

We are lucky to have a nice amount of natural sunlight in the atelier. We all find it calming to have low lighting from lamps and feel the warmth of the sun streaming in on our work. We see it sparkle off of mirrored balls watching the intensity change as the Earth rotates. The time change lets different classes experience the sparkling light. The children stop short in their tracks as the sparkles revolve around the room. I ask " Where is this light coming from?" "Bubbles" "Stars" "Disco balls!" "Why don't we see the sparkles on a cloudy day? "There is no sun!" The light is always inspiring them adding wonder to their day.
