God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

I made this magnet for my boyfriend after we saw an owl on the porch of my parents’ house. It was too dark to see him too well, but he was either grey or brown and fairly small. Every once in a while he’d turn his head and look at us, which was incredibly cool.

“…i’m not wondering where i’m going after I die…

i’m going after the wonder’s of living, while i’m alive.”

So, the clever “Solar Demi” created a way to bring light into their homes with something that’s essential free: empty plastic drink bottles. The results are amazing, and cost very little to build, and nothing to maintain.”
