My Night of Light

It was my first time lighting a candle that had such an ancient history attatched to it- or rather being mindful of the history behind the reason for lighting it. I've lit plenty of candles for other dieties, but nothing that has been carried on in such a rich tradition.
I picked a votive candle and a glass holder and thought of all the women (and men) before me that had held their match to the wick - and goosebumps came over me.

I think I"ll be painting the votive holder to distinguish it from the other candle holders in the house.

At the moment, this is all I have to share. I'm sure there will be more later!
