Candle Light

 
Candle light flickers
warm and bright on these dark nights.
Darkness gives you light.

I love how when it's dark, there is such beauty to be held in looking at the flickering flames of the candles, or the warmth from little fairy lights. When it turns cold and Winter arrives there is such beauty  to enjoy,  one of my pleasures of the day is lighting the candles as the day turns to dusk. When I feel the magic more, the sky turns pink or is misty and the candles glow with warmth and light. So the above piece I enjoyed journaling as a tribute to my candle lighting in Winter and to deep darkness, where only there can you enjoy the true beauty of light, for without darkness there would be no light.

Bonjour Kat,
Love the colours you have used. We are getting some wonderful sunsets here in the Charente-Maritime when we are not under a grey wet blanket. So far I'm hating the winter here. Praying it doesn't snow too... Bonne Annee..x

I totally agree with you, Kat. The emotion that floods one's soul amid candlelight is beyond explanation at times. You captured it really well in your piece of art. It's beautiful.

Oh, Kat. This is just beautiful and your words are perfect. I not been able to check in with my blogging friends for a few weeks and I have very much missed all the inspiration and happiness. I, too, love to light candles in the winter. They create such a warm, friendly environment.
