Single Illuminating Flame

I love lighting candles around the house. Like fire in a fireplace the flames are mesmerizing; yet, there is something even more spectacular about watching the single illuminating flame of a candle. Depression makes it difficult to find light in the darkness but no one said the light we find has to be so intense and brilliant that no darkness is left to be found. Starting with a single flame, a gentle flicker in the night might just be enough.
