  1. Well, I was sure I would choose the moon – sweet light in a dark sky – but I can’t resist how happy the sun is, especially that Brian Wildsmith, 100% exuberance!

    • I like that one too. When I was hunting for images I found more moon than sun illustrations which surprised me.

  2. I love Melissa’s alley cat lapping up the puddle of moon. She is amazing.

  3. Wow, well it was really tough! I chose the sun, because a larger number of those spoke to me…although the Melissa Sweet and Arthur Rackham images are fabulous!

  4. Nighttime, where the moon lives, is often a hard time for me, living with depression. Day time, where the sun lives, I’ve lived another day, and no matter what I’m feeling, light brings hope. Sun all the way.

    • It’s true that light brings hope. The moonlight and the sunlight both make me happy in different ways. I struggle when there is light without shadows – like when we had the smoke a few weeks ago.

  5. How do you choose between the sun and the moon? I love them both for different reasons. I loved the first picture by Abner because i could actually see the sun and the moon in the illustration of the sun.
