A candle is always sacred. Always, its small spark of energy moves me. I wake to cold and rain, and lighting candles warms me, warms the room, beyond the warmth of the small flames. In the heat and light of summer, candles quiet me and help me to turn inward. A simple act of magic, this balance—when I’m in stasis, the candles move me forward.


  1. Candles are the most inexpensive way to transport the self and/or create magic. I light them nearly every night - the glow makes me happy.

  2. And having candles lit around the house is very comforting...
