I lit a candle this morning, a heart-shaped one and it is here with me flickering on the desk as I type. I see the importance of fire, even when it is contained and displayed in the form of a single candle. Most of us don't have a fire in the fireplace each night as the days get shorter, but we can hold a little flame contained in wax in our hands and be comforted by its light, movement and play.
It is only by expressing all that is inside that purer and purer streams come.
