Themed Features - Volume 2
December - Holidays Season...
In this (at least for some parts of the world) darkest time of the year, I would like to present to you a themed feature on CANDLES and CANDLELIGHT.
We all know them... We call them kers - lys - kaars - bougie - kerze - gyertya - candela - vela - bujia - ljus depending on what language we speak. We lit them - sometimes, when electricity is not available - to have some light. But mainly, to create some atmosphere, during a meal with family, friends or beloved ones, and on a long but cosy winter evening... On certain occasions too, special festivities, birthdays... Sometimes for prayer, or to remember someone or something in a special way...
Candles are gentle, they bring us light and warmth, connectedness and company...
While browsing dA for some great candle-art, and afterwards, while I was preparing this journal entree and article, I found some quotes that I would like to share with you...
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. ~ Buddha
Man loves company - even if it is only that of a small burning candle. ~ Georg C. Lichtenberg
There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle Robert Alden
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. Edith Wharton
Its not the candle that makes the flame, but the flame that makes the candle ~ Paul Claudel
Its not necessary to light a candle to the sun. ~ A. Sidney
Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness ~Chinese Proverbs
Enjoy the features, and if you like the art, don't forget to
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL!
