Hushed Quiet In the Dark By Fire

Hushed Quiet In the Dark By Fire

The power went out for a couple of hours last night. I have a deep fear of house fires, especially since one of my cousins and her children died in one caused by an unattended candle a few years ago. Because of this, I don't keep much in the way of candles around, but I managed to find one to help me feel my way around the kitchen last night, and, guys? It was beautiful.

It had been so long since I sat by anything other than electric light at night that I had forgotten how entrancing the sway and shadow cast by candlelight can be. I swear religion grew out of humans being drawn together through hushed quiet in the dark by fire.
