I came up with the name Luminous Trails for a website some years ago whilst in a café in London with my friend Tony from America. It’s what comets or stars give off as sparkling light behind them. It also suggests spreading light and leaving a trail. The very same day I said to my friend that what I most wanted to do with it was partner up with a solar powered lantern company and have a portion of any money coming in get solar lanterns to places off the grid so people without electricity could have some light to cook or read or socialise by. That way the site could not only spread a little light, but also brighten up lives and literally leave luminous trails. I’ve held onto that vision and I’m so delighted that it is finally coming into view.
