Candles and Emotions
Do you know, that in former times – those times without electricity – to be able to light candles was a sign of being wealthy?
The church had those big wax candles, and the rich people had them in their houses.
Candles were not only a means of lighting up the dark. They were also – and still are- a sign of remembering somebody, of hoping.
The wifes of fishermen put candles in their windows, so their men might find their way back.
The mothers of ill children, the wifes of ill husbands lit up candles hoping that their beloved might recover.
I am putting up this candle as a sign of gratitude for five of my virtual blogging friends: Joanna Young in Scotland, Robert Hruzek in the USA, Brad Shorr in the USA, Karen Swim in the USA and Rosa Say in Hawaii. They are having a big part in my development as a blog writer and as a global citizen. Take care of you, you all!
