Light in the Darkness

We’ve been finding our way through these dark days with as much light and simplicity as we can. Light from beeswax candles on our solstice dinner table. And in a candle labyrinth, with over 600 beeswax candles flickering together.

This year Tom and I were awake early on Christmas morning, and came downstairs to start breakfast and enjoy a moment of quiet before the excitement of the day. The dawn slowly brightened the windows and illuminated the room. Even in this season of darkness there is light to be had.

Happy Holidays, everyone.

    I don’t cope well with the darkness of winter, and my sister in particular has told me again and again and again that I need more lights in the apartment. But looking at these photos confirms my idea that it is not more electric light that is needed. Oh, candlelight would more than do!

      There is something really lovely about candlelight. Beeswax candles especially are very calming…it must be the smell of honey in the air!
